My son has went to this school since Kindergarten, & he just guaduated from 114 today. The school could use a little work with disabled/troubled children but overall it was a good school &very glad to of had him there throughout his entire elementary years.

My 2 children have attended this school since kindergarten & now 1 of my children is going into the 4th grade & the other is going into the 2nd grade. Now don't get it wrong I like this school but both of my children are disabled one being bipolar, PDD, Learning disabiled, & has a speech impairment & the other has ADHD & a learning disability. I am very thankful that they awarded my son a one on one teacher (Ms. Long is the best:) but I am not very happy about him telling me that he doesn't have any friends & that he is in a isolated room with just him & Ms. Long most of the day, I really would like for him to interact with children his age more often because this is the world & he needs to be apart of it.

I have a child who is not just white but hispanic that recently was moved from one IPS scjool to this one and I feel that this is one of the better IPS schools. The kindergarten program is why he was moved. At 114 they have a developmental kindergarten; the teacher is one of the best.

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.
