High-Growth School in Mathematics
In November 2010, the Indiana Department of Education identified Childs Elementary as a top high-growth school in mathematics for the state of Indiana. Congratulations to our faculty, parents, and most importantly, our students for this outstanding achievement. As we continue to identify opportunities for enrichment, focused on a variety of student strengths, it is our goal to ensure all of our students are growing at a high rate at all achievement levels. Thank you for all you do to support your child’s education and Childs Elementary School.
