Edgelea is an outstanding school! It's a large school with a small community feel. That is attributed to Mrs. Clevenger, the principal, and her staff. They go above and beyond to help the children academically and socially. It's such a positive atmosphere as soon as you walk into the building. When I'm in the building, I often hear Mrs. Clevenger call students by name and see the positive interaction she has with students. The office staff is friendly and will help you with whatever you need. The teachers go above and beyond what is expected to help children learn. These are just some of the reasons they are an A-rated school!

This school made my son feel like he was incapable of learning. He was separated from the rest of the class to the point where they made him feel like he was choosing to be excluded. Teacher was always defending herself and her actions. He needed extra guidance and direction not admonishment. He woke up crying one morning and saying that he thought that school was like what he thought HE** would be like. We constantly tried to communicate with teachers to no avail. This prompted the transfer to a school a block away wherein which he felt validated and encouraged to participate. His grades reflected how he felt IMMEDIATELY. Administrator at Edgelea was not sympathetic and completely dismissed the issues with the teachers.

I am the parent of two students at Edgelea who were brought here from another Lafayette school through the 'challenge program' that focuses on gifted children. The principal, Dr. Vaughn, has a Ph.D. in gifted education and truly cares about the students. She is always available to consult, and keeps a hawk eye over the drop off zone in the parking lot before and after school. Safety is taken very seriously at Edgelea.

Edgelea is the best elementary school that we have ever encountered. Having had childrend in public schools and now having a grandchild in this school, I can attest to the fact that I've never been associated with a better one. The principal, Dr. Vaugn, rules with kindness but also firmness. The children know they are there to learn. This is definitely a 5 star school. I wish our grandson was still there!

Hi. My name is Alx Canada. I'm not a parent, I am a sophomore in high school, but I did attend Edgelea for fourth and fifth grade. This school is wonderful. I move a lot all over the country and I attended three different elementary schools alone, but I will never forget Edgelea, the teachers, the things I learned, the life-long friends I made there, or the fun activities the staff planned for us. This school has gifted programs for kids who need a challenge (which I did), they have a great music program including Circle of the State, and they score some of the best test numbers in Indiana! I recommend this school for your kids because the teachers truly care about the students enough to make their elementary days the best time of their entire schooling career.
