Where Academics, Arts and Athletics Rise

Welcome to Nineveh-Hensley-Jackson United School Corporation.

We are located in the rural Johnson County town of Trafalgar, Indiana, encompassing three townships:

  • Nineveh Township in Johnson County
  • Hensley Township in Johnson County
  • Jackson Township in Morgan County

Each school year is another opportunity to prepare our students as learners of who are ready, willing and able to function and serve in our 21st Century. 

We provide every student a safe, secure, fun and positive learning environment, as well as a supportive atmosphere for faculty and staff.  We will seek to challenge and help all of our students soar to new heights, harness the power of learning, and be the best they can be.

We are in the business of instruction with our passion and energy directed towards student learning.  We will strive to serve our students, teachers, school leaders, families, and community patrons, as we continue to work at becoming one of the best school corporations in the state of Indiana.

Finally, I count it a sincere honor and privilege to serve as the leader of Nineveh-Hensley-Jackson United School Corporation and truly enjoy the opportunity for us to pursue excellence in order to make our school system even better.

Our academics, arts and athletics are full of great expectations and excellent results!  GO BRAVES!
