The mission of Argos Community Schools is to provide quality instruction to all students in a safe, positive, and nurturing learning environment so that students can attain success. We have followed this tradition of excellence since 1847.
With our dedicated staff focused on helping students reach higher levels of achievement, Argos Community Schools is committed to delivering exceptional educational programs for all children. Argos Junior-Senior High School has always had the philosophy that size should not limit success or hinder progress. In fact, our smaller classroom size provides the added benefit of personal attention for our students.
Approximately 600 students attended Argos Community Schools in 2019-2020.
Kids Come First
Community & History
The Town of Argos has a population of approximately 2,000 and is located in north central Indiana’s Marshall County. Marshall County has a mixture of small towns with rural surroundings. Its easy access and close proximity to major cities like Indianapolis and Chicago creates the best of both worlds. In a short two-hour commute, our students can visit some of the best museums in the United States. They can return home in the afternoon to enjoy the amenities that living in a safe small-town provides.
Our new school bell, an innovation in communication, was the only one in the area. The bell now greets visitors who enter the high school lobby, and it remains a symbol of Argos schools’ commitment to progress.
Argos Community Schools is a single-campus K-12 environment. Our current building was completed in 1957 and houses both the elementary and secondary schools. An excellent auditorium was built and is used for school and community events. Our one campus culture provides an environment that enriches the lives of our students beyond a robust education.
A few perks of a single campus:
- Everyone is considered family
- Enriching multi-grade opportunities
- Multiple generations pass through the same traditions
- All-in school pride
- Easy transition for students as they grow
- Strong positive bonds between teachers and students are maintained throughout a student’s career and often beyond.
- Teachers, students, and school personnel are physically connected allowing for genuine investment into each other.
- Teachers are able to cultivate students and coach them individually towards our advanced placement (AP) classes.
- Strong role modeling. Our younger kids know the older kids by name and look up to them. Their accomplishments are etched into the younger students as obtainable goals.
These perks and more were highlighted recently. In the 2019-2020 school year, our boys’ soccer team won state (the third time for our school.) This accomplishment was celebrated through the school and in the halls. School pride and success of our students was experienced by all grade levels.
