The Academy of Science and Entrepreneurship will engage in a week-long (March 18-22) authentic project with the City of Bloomington's Economic and Sustainable Development Department. Various community organizations will present a sustainability issue to our student, but first we asked some of our students to define in their own words, sustainability. This is what they have to say.
The Indiana Department of Education announced the 2017-2018 Four Star Schools. The Four Star Schools designation is designed by the Department to recognize great schools in Indiana. The Monroe County Community School Corporation had five schools (Childs Elementary, Unionville Elementary, University Elementary, The Academy of Science and Entrepreneurship, and Bloomington High School South) receive the designation.
“Receiving designation as a Four Star School signifies a pursuit of academic excellence among students, educators, and the administration,” said Dr. Jennifer McCormick, Indiana Superintendent of Public Instruction. “I am honored to recognize these Four Star Schools for their hard work and dedication in preparing their students for a bright and prosperous future.”
The Four Star School Award has been in existence for over 30 years. To receive Four Star designation, a school must receive an “A” on the state’s A-F accountability system and have excellent ISTEP pass rates. A total of 234 schools received the award.

Students completed a class project that challenged them to choose a location and reflect on what it means to them. Then they each made a video to express that location’s “sense of place.” They’ve shared their work with Limestone Post, and the results are powerful. Click here to watch and learn!
