Munster High School's Mission:

Our mission is to help students demonstrate academic growth and social responsibility in a supportive and intellectually challenging environment.

New Media Center invites collaboration

As teaching and learning evolve to support new pathways for student success, so do school library spaces. Munster High School's Media Center is introducing a new space that invites student creativity and collaboration; encourages participatory learning; and promotes the use of digital technologies.

And the books? They'll be back! Printed books still play a critical role in supporting learners, and Munster High School takes every opportunity to promote reading. Mustangs will find a re-energized book collection featuring many of today's popular young adult titles. Stay tuned!

Tech tips for Students and Munster High School's Laptop Policy

At least twice a month, you should restart your device at school. Otherwise, your laptop will not receive important Microsoft and STM updates that are pushed out to devices. Reconnecting to the school network every so often is good for your laptop. You also can change your password. This video shows you how: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f6ouBcTtjOc

Activate your OneDrive account and move everything saved in your Documents AND Downloads folders into OneDrive. OneDrive is to Microsoft what the Drive is to Google: cloud storage. OneDrive (or a flash drive) is the safest place to save your school work.

If you need tech assistance—

    • Email support@student.munster.us. Please attach screenshots and/or pictures of error messages. They’re very helpful!

    • Call the Support Hotline at 219-836-7157. If the Technology Department cannot assist you remotely, you will be directed to the Media Center. A staff member will issue a loaner device to you while your laptop gets repaired.
