Testimonies to Tri-County's exemplary education offerings:
"Being a student at Tri-County has been a great experience. After attending Tri-County schools for over 11 years, I can confidently say I have been given many opportunities for growth and achievement, especially as a high school student. Personally, I have been part of a quality music education program since seventh grade through which I have competed at multiple state performance contests and even traveled to Ireland as a concert band member. I am also extremely privileged to be a member of two of Tri-County’s career and technical education clubs; FFA and Business Professionals of America. Both of our chapters continue to rank among the best in the nation. I an countless other students have had the opportunity to travel from coast to coast representing Tri-County Schools in a variety of competitions.
One of the best attributes about my experience at Tri-County, however, is the community feel that comes with attending these schools. Small class sizes have allowed for me to connect with my teachers on a deeper level. My teachers have always been willing to help me succeed in class; my pre-calculus teacher even arranged study sessions before school on test days! Community activities, such as parades and athletic events, also provide great opportunities to connect with fellow students and parents in the area.
If any parents are looking for a school where their students will have the chance to succeed, whether they are interested in athletics, arts, or simply quality education, I highly recommend Tri-County."

"As we were thinking about starting out own business and family a short seven years ago, we had several stipulations in mind when it came to relocating our business from the West Lafayette area. One of the goals was to relocate to an area where the community supported the school and the school supported the community. I am a graduate of Tri-County and it truly offered me life-changing experiences that helped shape who I am today. After much discussion with local citizens, business owners and staff of the Tri-County district, I was thrilled to hear the school still had the forward thinking reputation that I remember growing up when I was attending.
We have a daughter who is in first grade, a son who will be attending kindergarten in the fall of 2017, a son who is 2 and a daughter expected to be born in January 2017. The educational climate has changed so much since I graduated back in 2002. Kids today are constantly being challenged to do more and earlier in their young lives. What we have noticed is that Tri-County understands this from top to bottom and takes a true interest in every single student individually so they are able to achieve their own personal success.
Tri-County goes above and beyond the call of duty every single day that redefines traditional education. The one-on-one student mentoring, child safety and well-being, and the community-school mindset gives us the comfort that we have found the right community to grow our family and business for the foreseeable future."

I am proud to have taught at Tri-County for six years and
prior to that, to have been an instructional assistant at Tri-County for five

Hard work and a good education are important to Remington and Wolcott and no where is that more evident than in the Tri-County Schools. A shared pride in the Tri-County School Corporation
, along with concern over decreasing population and school enrollment, is what prompted the communities to come together to address the region’s future.
The school district consists of Tri-County Primary, serving kindergarten through 2nd grade; Tri-County Intermediate, serving grades 3 through 6; and Tri-County Middle-Senior High School for grades 7 to 12. Current school district enrollment is 764 students. Student to teacher ratio in the district is approximately 14 to 1. This level of personal attention can offer more opportunities for students and encourage community involvement.
ISTEP scores for all tested grades in the school district have met or exceeded the state average since the 2006-2007 school year. The Tri-County Cavaliers compete in Class 1A high school football, boys & girls basketball, baseball, softball, boys & girls track, volleyball and cross country. Many students are members of the local 4-H and FFA. Other activities include band, cheerleading, and special interest clubs such as chess, art, book, languages, National Honor Society and BPA. The elementary school is home to several after-school clubs as well, including the dinosaur club and math club.
The loyal and strong alumni keep in touch through an alumni web site that organizes class reunions, discussions and special groups, and provides a forum for sharing pictures and showing school spirit.
