"Empowering Our Future One Child At A Time."
Welcome to the Elwood Community School Corporation website. We are working hard to revamp our website in an effort to give our community members easy access to the information they need. We also hope this will provide guidance to the families who are looking for a new school to make the best choice for their students.
Elwood is located in the heart of Indiana and has the great advantage of being a short commute from Noblesville, Fishers, Anderson, Muncie, Marion, Kokomo, and Indianapolis. Our schools have over 1,600 students in grades K-12 with nearly an additional 200 students in our phenomenal preschool program. We offer enormous opportunities for students with a wide range of Dual Credit and Advanced Placement courses, outstanding music, band, and art opportunities, and a variety of other extra-curricular and athletic options. Also located on our campus is the Hinds Career Center which offers amazing vocational opportunities for our students and students from eight other school corporations.
We believe Elwood Schools offer great options for our students. Our goal is providing an education that has every child empowered for the future. To ensure we are providing the best opportunities for our students, we need to hear from all of our community stakeholders. If you have information to share or a question I may answer let me hear from you. You will receive a response.

SchoolMessenger Notification Service
The Elwood Community School Corporation uses the SchoolMessenger service to send telephone, text, or email alerts of school closings, delays, and other messages to parents and staff. Original contact information is taken from the STI student database and can be adjusted by parents and staff to allow the alerts to be sent to different phone numbers or email addresses. Parents and guardians of Elwood students can create an account with SchoolMessenger’s Contact Manager. The Contact Manager account will allow parents/guardians of ECSC students to enter their telephone numbers to be called, to receive a text, and/or email addresses to receive school related alerts.
The following items are needed to create your SchoolMessenger account:
- An email address to receive an “Activation Code”
- Telephone to call in the “Activation Code”
- School supplied “ID” numbers for each child. ID found on student’s Report Card, in STI Home Access, or by contacting school office
To access existing SchoolMessenger account:
