Welcome to Tri-Central Elementary School

Mr. Miller
Hello!  My name is Matthew Miller and I am the Principal at Tri-Central Elementary.  Thank you for taking the time to visit our school website.  Tri-Central is a Pre-K – 12 building and the elementary serves approximately 310 students in grades Pre-K – 5.  Tri-Central is a rural school located in Tipton County, Indiana.  

I would welcome you to stop in and see us at any time!  We welcome the opportunity to speak with you and we welcome the opportunity to have your children enroll at Tri-Central Elementary.

Tri-Central Elementary staff has received professional development with the C.L.A.S.S. teaching philosophy.  One of our core beliefs is to Treat People Right and Do the Right Thing!  Our school staff works very hard to instill this belief each and every day.  We also believe that as good as we are, we know we can always get better.    

If you have any questions I would invite you to contact us.
