Independent, inquisitive, insatiable – these are typical traits of students in the elementary grades of 3-5. Many believe it's in these years that a love of knowledge, an attitude of lifelong learning, is instilled.

At Indian Hill Elementary School, we focus on nurturing and encouraging these natural traits and creating an individualized learning experience to support whole child development. Students have the chance to explore concepts in more depth. Instructional practices supported by data meet the diverse needs of our learners, and our SEEDS program (Safe Environment for Educating Diverse Students) is incorporated into daily work.

When students leave Indian Hill Elementary after finishing fifth grade, they are on their way to becoming successful, respectful young people, ready to take on greater challenges, academically and personally.

What's New at IHES?

ONE BOOK, ONE SCHOOL, ONE COMMUNITY

On February 9th, all Indian Hill Elementary School students will read The Golden Rule by Ilene Cooper, as a part of One Book, One School initiative.  This is a special time when all students and faculty read a common book together for discussion and reflection.

Indian Hill Elementary School would like to extend our One Book, One School initiative to our community through “Care Kits”. During third quarter each student will have the opportunity to take home a “Care Kit” that includes The Golden Rule, talking tips for parents, and an activity related to our school of kindness initiative and to our school wide overarching guidelines: take care of ourselves, others, and the environment. This powerful project will ensure that every child is exposed to the same concepts for building a culture of kindness at Indian Hill Elementary School.  

Students will have the opportunity to read a text at home and connect the content to their own lives.  The book and activities within the kit will foster connections between children, parents, and school in order to build a foundation that promotes healthy relationships and learning through literature. The activities do not need to be returned but we hope they act as a springboard for discussion at home.  This time can also be added to your reading log minutes.  Thank you for supporting our school wide goals!
