    CURRICULUM MAPS

    Indian Creek is dedicated to academic excellence and utilizes curriculum mapping to organize and align instruction used to determine what is taught and when based upon national and state-mandated standards. Our teachers work hard to create and collaborate on a thorough road map with their peers to achieve student success in the classroom. Teachers will update each map to reflect accurate classroom pacing and any updated standards from the Indiana Department of Education.

    OUR VISION 

    The vision of the Nineveh-Hensley-Jackson United School Corporation is that of a dynamic organization that will work in partnership with the family and community to maintain and provide adequate resources for a safe, disciplined, and productive environment where all students and highly competent and committed adults are meaningfully engaging in learning. Our curriculum design and instructional practices will provide the knowledge, attitudes, skills, and habits for all students to become responsible citizens in American society, life-long learners, and successful participants in a global and technological society.

    CREEK CREED

    Today I will do my best to be my best.

    I will come to school to learn and grow.

    I will treat others the way I want to be treated.

    I will be honest and fair and set a good example.

    I will believe in myself, for I am responsible for my own success!

    Our Mission

    The Indian Creek Elementary staff, with family and community support, teaches and challenges each child to build basic and technological skills. We endeavor to promote a positive self-concept needed to become an active, self-motivated, lifelong learner. We strive to prepare each child to become the best possible citizen for the diverse and unique communities of tomorrow.

    Indian Creek Schools

    Indian Creek Elementary School serves the needs of young children from pre-kindergarten through grade 2. ICES is unique because it is geared to meet the needs of the early childhood learner. The staff, administrators, and curriculum focus on creating opportunities for young people to grow academically, emotionally, and physically in a nurturing environment.

    Notable features of ICES include a 1-to-1 model of technology using iPads. The iPads are used with Google Classroom for student engagement. The students also use them for e-Learning days. Every classroom also has multimedia presentation equipment.

    ICES has Title I, special education, music, art, physical education, library, and STEAM teachers. Our school has a counselor, a speech therapist, a psychologist, and a nurse who provide support services to students. Our assessment tools are Star Reading and Star Early Literacy. These assessments provide the teacher, principal, and Title I teacher with information to assist in individualizing instruction.

    Indian Creek students benefit from the staff’s ability to focus on a primary age curriculum. The staff is able to channel their efforts into the early grades and each student’s specific needs. ICES provides a warm, secure, and stimulating environment.
