Educating Tipton County

There have been a lot of changes seen throughout the almost 200 years of educating the children of Tipton County. From one-room schools and community schools with a hand-full of educators who taught students of several ages and grades in the same classroom to today’s current 16 elementary, middle, and high schools and their hundreds of teachers, the education landscape of Tipton County has seen some significant changes in the ever-present push to educate and help Tipton County students be the best they can be. Education Generations: Tipton County Schools will be on exhibit through Aug 24 during normal business hours.  Visit Tipton County Schools – Tipton County Museum to see more Tipton County School history online.
