Mission Statement: Our vision at Clarksville Elementary is to develop every child as an individual, both academically and socially, so that each child will grow, learn and feel important.

About: With students from pre-school to fourth grade, Clarksville Elementary’s highly qualified staff works hard to ensure every child reaches his or her highest potential.  Clarksville Elementary is a Title 1 school, which means we receive federal funding to provide academic support in reading and math for our students.  We offer Title One informational meetings for CES families throughout the year as well as themed Family Nights.

The school of approximately 530 students has many opportunities for students, including physical education, music, art and technology programs.  Students in third and fourth grade have the opportunity to participate in basketball, cheerleading, track, and Student Council. Third and fourth graders also have the opportunity to participate in an after school Homework Club through the Communities in Schools program. In addition to our classroom teachers,  the Title One teacher, ELL teacher, Master Teacher, speech teachers, and several assistants work to ensure all needs of our students are met.

The faculty and students at Clarksville Elementary work diligently at mastering state standards, developing positive relationships between students and students as well as students and staff. CES has received an “A” rating from the Indiana Department of Education for the last two years as a result of the growth in our students’ ISTEP scores.  We are very proud of both our students and staff at CES!

Clarksville Elementary is a TAP school (The System for Teacher and Student Advancement), and our Master Teacher leads weekly professional development meetings for our teachers.  We use school wide strategies in both Reading and Math so that instruction is consistent in all grades.  Our TAP Leadership Team works hard to support our teachers so they can provide the very best education for our students.

Clarksville Elementary uses a school wide Positive Behavior Intervention Support System  (PBIS) centered around REACH (Respect, empathy, attitude, cooperation, and honesty).  Our school counselor teaches monthly character education classes that support REACH and the daily announcements always have a tip for one of the character traits in REACH for the month.  Two Explorers of the Month (one boy and one girl from each class) who are showing good examples of the monthly character trait.  The chosen students will be treated to a special lunch with the principal and have their pictures displayed in the hallway!
