Yeah that's already been mentioned and has nothing to do with what we're talking about. 

@sr1 cannot ever be wrong.

School Field in South Bend is turf...the other two are grass

All schools use all fields...so technically all of them have turf

Maybe I misunderstand what you are tying to say.  How is artificial turf and grass the same thing?  Grass fields usually end up with mud/bare spots, artificial turf fields do not.

Jeffersonville (Jeff) does not.

To add to the list for 4A, 5A, and 6A schools, the following have it: 

Lake Central, Avon, Crown Point, Portage, Perry Meridian, Homestead, Southport, Warsaw, F.W. Northrop (I believe is getting it?), Valpo, Chesterton, LaPorte, Indy Arsenal Tech, Anderson, Zionsville, Goshen, FW Snider (I believe is getting it?), Whiteland, SB Adams, Kokomo, McCutcheon, Decatur Central, Michigan City, Elkhart Central, Greenfield-Central, Munster, Mooresville, Hammond Morton, Jennings County, Richmond, East Central, Hobart, East Noble, SB Riley, East Chicago, Logansport, Mt. Vernon (Fortville), Greenwood, Roncalli, Plymouth, New Pal, Jasper, FW Bishop Dwenger ?, Marion, Northview, New Castle, New Haven, SB Washington

If any of those schools are incorrect, please comment.

South Bend Riley plays at Jackson Field which has natural turf not artificial.

School Field has artifical turf.  The others have grass.

All the schools use School Field for some of their games.  Riley does play at Jackson Field and Clay plays at Clay field but all can use School Field

Okay, gotcha.  When you said, "All schools" I was thinking you meant every school in the state.

Schools I'm still missing

FW BD, FW Snider, FW Northrop, FW Northside (I'm also not sure if all these schools have their own field or not, can someone help with that?)

Attucks and Shortridge... again do they have their own fields?

Leo

I have all the other schools in 4A-6A accounted for. 3 categories, turf, not turf, and don't have their own field.

Snider and Northrop share Spuller Stadium? Which is being upgraded to field turf for the 2019 season.

Word is Carroll (FW) will be getting turf in the next few years.  Plans to build a new stadium behind the current soccer field are in the works.

Still waiting on Leo, Attucks, Shortridge, and Western. Put Snider as sharing a stadium with Northrop, so they don't factor in. I have started on 3A... so you all start letting me know who has what lol
