A major reconfiguration is underway for the Metropolitan School District of Wabash County schools. Beginning in the 2017/18 school year, Northfield will be the only high school in MSD. Southwood Jr. – Sr. High School will be converted to a 5-8 middle school. Sharp Creek Elementary will close in 2017/18 and MSD will keep the building.
Other elementary schools will remain open but serve K-4 only. The School board made the decision in light of declining enrollment and tight finances at MSD. MSD intends to offer public forums for staff and parents to ask questions at a later date.
