Superintendent's Message

Dear Friend:
Thank you for visiting the website of the School City of East Chicago. On our site you will find many pages that take you inside our School City of East Chicago buildings and classrooms. I invite you to tour this site and see the outstanding work of our students and staff.
It is a pleasure to return to the School City of East Chicago as your new Superintendent, and to welcome everyone to a new school year. The School City of East Chicago has a very dedicated staff who is committed to supporting our students each and every day. We are constantly seeking better ways to meet the needs of all of our students. We believe in continuous improvement and are always seeking ways to improve the lives of our students, families, and community.

In the School City of East Chicago, we want all of our students to be challenged, loved, and supported by our staff. We care about our students and set very high expectations for our students and ourselves. We are committed to preparing our students for the future, and believe it takes a village to raise a child. Please remember, we are all in this together.

In the School City of East Chicago, we want all of our students to receive an excellent and well-rounded education. We provide our students with many academic opportunities, but also want them to be involved in athletic and extra and co-curricular activities. We want our students to be competitive in the classroom as well as their interest outside of the classroom. These activities provide our students with a different setting to interact with each other and build skills that will prepare them for life.

We believe the School City of East Chicago can become the best district in the state of Indiana. In order to do this, we must all work together for the betterment of our students. Remember, they are the future and the ones who will lead our city in the years to come.


Dr. Javier Abrego
