I guess it is true for many people considering living in subdivisions on the border. You used to be able to pay tuition to have kids go to Munster. However, Munster mandated a child who transfers in must be in good standing (3.0/B minimum grades) and absolutely no history of behavior issues. Not only did the price in tuition weed many families out, the grades and behavior mandates ensured that Munster only accepted higher caliber students.

Well, some things changed. First, a few years ago the district (amongst others) was audited by the state and basically was told that while you are allowed to charge tuition, you probably shouldn't charge as much as you are. The school system accepted this advice (they did not have to). However, the state then mandated that school districts who chose to accept transfer/tuition students cannot have grade and behavioral restrictions unless the child has harmed another child or staff member in their previous district. Well Munster made a decision (a very smart one, IMO) to basically say "If we cannot hold certain standards to tuition students, then we will not accept any students).

Many families in Briar Ridge had sent their kids to Munster for the schools. I do know of two families that have purchased condos in Munster in order to continue to send their kids to schools.

Default Update

Driving through the Shannon Bridge section now (compared to over 7 years ago when I started this thread) is a complete turnaround! Especially within the past 2 years, homes have really been going up much faster!
