Posted December 31, 2008

We are new to the state of Indiana. My daughter has been at Borden for 1 year. I will admit it was a big adjustment coming from a large city, but now I see the wonderful benefits of attending school in a rural setting. The community seems to really care about our children. The teachers work hard providing a quality education for our children and I appreciate them. America does not pay our teachers the salary they deserve, maybe this economic crisis will get all Americans to realize where our money really needs to go, if we want the future to be better for our children.

The Kindergarten teachers are wonderful. One in-particular, is Mrs Amy Greenwell. She goes above and beyond with each child to make sure they feel comfortable and make their first experience in school a good one. She teaches on a level a 5/6 year old should be learning in my opinion. I know my son misses her very much since we've moved away and no one will ever measure up to her to me or my son. She was a Godsend for us and I will forever miss her.

We are glad that our kids attend Borden, the teachers are great and they really care, which is hard to find today.

I am extreamly happy and excited to have my children attend Borden. The teachers and staff are of the highest quality and have true concern for the students. Its nice to know there are still schools out there that are concerned for the student rather then what the state can give them for thier presence.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Indiana used the Indiana Statewide Testing for Educational Progress-Plus (ISTEP+) assessment to test students in grades 3 through 8 in English language arts and math, grades 4 and 6 in science, and in grades 5 and 7 in social studies. The ISTEP+ is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Indiana. The goal is for all students to score at the passing level on the test.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
