WELCOME TO THE 2017-18 SCHOOL YEAR IN THE MACONAQUAH SCHOOLS
Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Doug Arnold’s Message:
Welcome to the Maconaquah Schools’ corporation website. Our website has been updated and we hope it will answer any questions that you might have about us. We want the Maconaquah Schools to be the corporation of choice in North Central Indiana.
We are located 13 miles north of Kokomo, Indiana. The school corporation includes 168 square miles of land. Our school corporation includes four buildings:
Our Average Daily Membership or ADM count for grades K-12 as of September 16, 2016 is 2261.
Maconaquah School Corporation is truly fortunate to have a highly qualified team of teachers, administrators and classified staff serving our students. We have 140 certified staff and 144 classified staff for the 2017-18 school year.
We have an extremely safe and secure school corporation with a state-approved school safety plan and we have a School Resource Officer (SRO) who is a Miami County Sheriff’s Deputy.
We have an exceptional technology program. We have been one-to-one (one computer per student) grades K-12 for five school years. We have been approved by the Indiana Department of Education for the past three school years to use eLearning days when school is cancelled due to inclement weather.
Each of our four buildings has a special emphasis on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) education. In fact, Maconaquah Middle School is a STEM certified building by the IDOE.
We operate on a balanced calendar which allows us to provide remediation to our neediest students and enrichment as a choice for the first week of our two-week fall and spring breaks.
The Maconaquah Schools offer tuition-free transfers to those students who “choose” us.
If you ever have any questions or concerns about the Maconaquah Schools, please feel free to call or e-mail at 765-689-9131 or arnoldd@maconaquah.K12.in.us.
Mac honors the Brave
Veterans recognized before Friday’s football game

Maconaquah High School honored veterans with a special pregame ceremony before the football team took on the Wabash Apaches.
During the ceremony, veterans were called down from the stands and were asked to line up on the south side of the field to be honored during the The Star Spangled Banner, performed by Maconaquah’s Marching Braves. When the band finished, American Huey 369, a non-profit organization based out of Grissom Air Reserve Base, awed the crowd with a fly-by of a helicopter that was often flown in the Vietnam War.
A uniform feeling of pride was erupting from the crowd.
Stacey Feazel, a lunch monitor for Maconaquah Middle School, could not hide her smiles when expressing her feelings about the Military Appreciation Night. She, along with many others in attendance, had a few family members in the military.
She said it was “such an honor” for her to be at the game with so many men and women who have fought for her freedom.
MHS sophomore Riley McDonald said Military Appreciation Night was “our most important night."
“My grandpa passed away a few years ago, but he served in World War I and II, and he was injured,” McDonald said. “I think that to really appreciate them, we should dedicate our whole lives to them. They should be revered wherever they go. What they do for this country is amazing.”
With Maconaquah’s homecoming game taking place this Friday, Military Appreciation Night gave pause to pay respects to the country’s service men and women, especially considering Maconaquah’s rich history with the military and Grissom Air Force Base.
And as an added bonus, the Braves beat the Apaches 43-12.
