Welcome to Loogootee Community Schools
Although Loogootee Community School Corporation is a small district, it has much to offer those attending. K-12 PLTW courses in engineering, biomedical science, and cybersecurity, project-based learning, well-known musical programming, and one of the only FAA drone programs in the state provides our students with a rounded education and prepares them for their post-secondary endeavors. Students have the ability to graduate with more than 100 dual credits from Vincennes University, Ivy Tech, ISU, and Indiana University and have the ability to acquire an Associate degree by the time they graduate from high school.
We welcome you to look around our site and look forward to hearing from you!

Project Lead The Way is a STEM curriculum that is designed to provide transformative learning experiences for students and teachers. PLTW provides an engaging and hands-on learning environment for our students in grades K-12. It empowers students to become thinkers and problem solvers. LCSC is the smallest school to offer K-12 PLTW in the nation and has been named a PLTW Showcase Corporation. Loogootee Elementary and Loogootee Middle School have been named PLTW Schools of Distinction.
STEM Certified Schools
Loogootee Elementary and Loogootee High School are two of the few schools in Southern Indiana that have been certified by the Indiana Department of Education as schools that prioritize the teaching of science, technology, engineering, and math disciplines - which are critical to preparing students for 21st Century success. STEM Certified Schools exemplify a highly non-traditional approach to education by employing a great deal of inquiry, project-based learning, community engagement, entrepreneurship, student-centered classrooms, and out-of-school STEM activities.
Loogootee students have numerous opportunities to get involved in the performing and visual arts. Multiple theatrical and instrumental productions are produced throughout the year. Our visual arts department focuses on cultivating creativity and expression in our students. A wide range of fine arts courses include painting, ceramics, digital art, choir, theatrical performance, instrumental drums, and concert band. At LCSC, we encourage our young artists to try new things, think creatively, and enjoy the creative process.
Dual Credit Opportunities
LHS students have an opportunity to graduate with an Associate degree while in high school. LHS partners with IU, ISU, VU, and Ivy Tech to offer over 90 dual credit opportunities. These courses are offered at a significantly reduced price, and some are completely free. The majority of courses will transfer to four year universities and save LHS graduates thousands in tuition expenses.
