Hey all...

Looking to move out to Michigan City (800 block of Liberty Trail). Can anyone give me details about the area? Schools? Crime?
I'm not unrealistic. I know there may be issues, but I have two sons and I am just curious what I may be getting myself into. Thanks everyone.

There are some great areas in Michigan City. I personally wouldn't put my children in the Michigan City area schools. Chesterton or Valparaiso are far better. good luck with your move.

Go to greatschools.com and look up the stats on the schools in your desired area. Another good site is sperlings. It breaks down many different areas of concern for you to consider when making a move. Good luck

Michigan City school system is what you and your child(ren) put into it. If you and your student are serious about learning, its a fine school. If you dont care... well, why bother. Just by going to a visit to the potential school and meeting the teacher(s) will show that you care. I hate to say it, but parents & students can get preferred treatment at a school just for giving a d***.

That's true. Your kid is treated with more respect from the adults in the building if they know you're involved.

Don't do it. There are a few...decent areas to live but as far as the schools , it isn't you get what you put into. It's just bad period. La Porte county is essentially a dying area.
