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.
