I am a local college student studying Elementary Education. I was welcomed into Cedarville to do 15 hours of observation. This school is one of the best schools I have ever been in. The children are so well disciplined. All of the children I encountered were smart and loved being in school. All of the teachers are so welcoming and kind. And the principal, he is an awesome guy. Very energetic, very fun, loves being with the students. He attends many conferences to better himself. Most of the teachers also attend conferences to better their teaching as well. They have many things for the students to do. There is a computer lab, writing lab, science lab, math lab, library, gymnasium, art room, music room, and so much more! I highly recommend this school if you are trying to find somewhere to put your child. You won't regret the decision!

I've got three kids with one in school and two on their way. The school grounds are very cool with lots of computers, centralized library, and great classrooms. I find the teachers to be very strong on education and very supportive of parents.

Our 2nd grade twins have attended cedarville elementry for the past 2 years and every teacher has been excellent and caring. Ever teacher has a positive attitude and greets you with a smile. Mr. Emerich is a true role model to his staff and students. Our twins have always been in differant class rooms, yet at the end of the school year they both prepared equally for the next school year. Even though each teacher has a differant teaching style and daily plan, the students are prepared and have a understanding of what it will be expected of them for the following school year.You will not find a better school then cedarville. Keep up the excellent work. Dan m.

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.

About the tests


Indiana uses the A through F School Grading System to assess the overall performance of a school. For the 2011-2012 school year, schools were graded based on performance and participation levels in state standardized tests and student growth using the Indiana Growth Model. In addition, high schools were graded on four-year (on-time) graduation rates and college and career readiness indicators including Advanced Placment exam results and industry certification exam results.

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.
