Principal's Message

Dear Indian Hills Community,

     Great things happen at Indian Hills Elementary! We have several programs worthy of mention and a faculty and staff dedicated to student success. Our Hands-on Science continues to be a student favorite. Every student receives at least 10 Hands-on Science sessions that bring science core curriculum to life.

     Indian Hills also offers students an opportunity to go beyond the regular core curriculum with the Academic Enhancement Program. This is a grade specific program designed to allow students to excel beyond the regular curriculum. Better known to students as the “Excellent Eagle Award,” the program’s design is to promote self-directed learning and inquiry. Students work beyond the school walls on language arts, math, science, the arts, physical education, and civic responsibility. Approximately one-third of our students participate annually and they receive honors in a big program at the end of the school year.

     We see tremendous success with our before and after school tutoring program. Students struggling with specific concepts arrive at school early or stay late to receive individual or small group instruction from their teacher(s).

     The arts are a big part of Indian Hills as well. Students participate in music, visual arts, dance, and each grade level performs for their parents and peers in an annual performance. Additionally, our spring Art Fair is an amazing experience. We cannot express enough our gratitude to the many parents and community members who have helped us become who we are. Our vast community works together to make Indian Hills Elementary a place where excellence is commonplace.
