Education

The East Central Indiana region is fortunate to be equipped with excellent education offerings, from early education all the way through graduate studies at one of the nation’s choice institutions of higher learning.

Two local high schools are among the best in the state, according to the 2013 U.S. News and World Report annual rankings of “Best High Schools.” On the list for Indiana schools, Burris Laboratory School came in at No. 3 and Yorktown High School is No. 10.

Locally, the student/teacher ratios are very favorable. This fact, supplemented by our numerous learning enhancement programs, means that students here receive attention and quality instruction which are vitally important to early education.

Each of the seven school corporations in Delaware County, as well as the private and parochial schools, have start up dates, orientation programs, and registration days for new students that apply specifically to the schools within their system. To obtain more information on the school(s) your children will attend, contact the Superintendents or Principal's Office of your school system or the school you are interested in at the address or phone number below.
