The School Corporation[edit]

The South Gibson School Corporation is the largest of the three public school governing institutions in both enrollment and territory covered in Gibson County, Indiana as well as one of the ten largest in enrollment in Southwestern Indiana. The SGSC is responsible for a district including four townships of southern and southwestern Gibson County; Johnson, Montgomery, Union, Wabash, and parts of Barton, Center and Patoka Townships within Gibson County as well as drawing in students from Northern Vanderburgh and Posey Counties. It consists of a superintendent, a five-member school board, eight principals and vice principals and employs around 190 teachers and specialists. As of the 2007-08 school year, the overall enrollment stands at around 2000-2500 students in K-12. The population of the areas inside South Gibson area are starting to become among the fastest growing areas in Southwestern Indiana with all three main towns of Southern Gibson County, Fort Branch Haubstadt and Owensville posting 5-10% population gains every year as well as a number of subdivisions building up outside and around the three towns and at least three of the seven smaller hamlets. The SGSC's renovation of the 35-year-old Gibson Southern High School was complete as of 2010-11 School Year.

In addition, in 2011 Haubstadt Community School installed a 2.4 kW Wind Turbine at the rear of the school property. The corporation plans to eventually install turbines at its other facilities in the future, which may result in income as the corporation sells of unused power from the turbines.
