Wednesday, Aug. 14, 2019, marked the start of a new era for students in grades 5-8 in LaPorte Community Schools. The new Kesling campus — which includes Kesling Intermediate School (grades 5 and 6) and LaPorte Middle School (grades 7 and 8) — officially opened. Although there are still a few things left to do, students, teachers and staff began the new year in a new building on the west side and a renovated building on the east, this all on the site of the former Kesling Middle School off 18th Street. Students from Boston Middle School, along with 5th graders, now attend the Kesling campus. The Boston building, originally a LaPorte High School site, now houses administrative offices.

    Lawman, it’s to justify additional useless highly paid administrative positions. Don’t ask questions that have no answers.

    Wow! What a beautiful new school for all of these young minds! Cheers to a great new school year for all of these kiddos, teachers, bus drivers and staff. You are all doing a great job! Give it all a little bit of time. Change is hard but this will be great!
