From the Superintendent

We hope that your visit will provide you with any information about our School District that you may be seeking. I can assure you that we are committed to our Vision of providing our students with preparation to achieve success through quality instruction.

In recent years we have been recognized with a National Blue Ribbon Award at Sprunica Elementary School and with Indiana Four Star School Status at both Sprunica and Helmsburg Elementary Schools. Brown County High School is a Silver Award Rated School as the 39th ranked High School in Indiana by U.S. News and World Report. The “We the People” Team as Brown County Junior High School is the five time defending State Championship Team in the study and interpretation of the US Constitution. They are the National Runner-up Team in 2015 after being the National Champions in 2013 and 2014.

Our students are winning many individual awards in Indiana Science Fairs, National History Day competition, and other academic competitions including Spell Bowl and Math Bowl.

Brown County Schools offers our students a small school atmosphere. We have the very latest in technology opportunities for our students.  We accept students who live in Brown County as well as students who reside outside the District. We are dedicated to providing your children with a quality education in a nurturing environment.

We invite you to personally experience our unique culture with a visit to any of our schools at any time. Please contact me or any of our school Principals to ask questions or set up a school visit. I look forward to hearing from you.
