To the MIS Community and the GC Corporation, you have no idea how much we appreciate your support and kind words during this difficult time. The support has been overwhelming, yet so much needed.

We will never forget the huge smile Mrs. Chance always had on her face, nor the sacrifices she made for all of our students. From her preparation for class to her selflessness in giving hours of her time to the robotics team, she always put students at the forefront while making MIS a better place for all.


Welcome to the Maxwell Intermediate School Website!

It is our desire to make this site relevant and helpful to our students, parents, faculty, patrons, and visitors.  We are very excited about the opportunities that the intermediate “tier” will provide ALL of our students.  We encourage you to check back often for frequent updates so that you may stay current on what is happening in your child’s education.

Should you have a question about something, please feel free to call the office at 317.326.3121.
