Welcome to Beech Grove City Schools

Direct from the Desk of the Superintendent:

For the upcoming school year, we are excited to share that the instruction your child will receive is going to look a bit different than it has in the past. In grades 1-6, students will receive instruction from all three teachers on their instructional team. Students will have a math teacher, a reading teacher, and a science and social studies teacher. Kindergarten students will have only one teacher who will teach all of the basic subjects. Every student will benefit from this model, where our teachers become "experts" in their content area. Our teachers will be working closely together to make certain all Indiana Academic Standards are being addressed. As well, the teachers will collaborate to create and implement engaging and motivating lessons for their textbooks, provided by Curriculum Associates. 

In addition, all K-8 students will receive Science instruction from new curriculum and materials. This new instructional model and curricular materials will allow for greater consistency and alignment, not only between classes in the same grade, but also between grade levels and schools. Our administrators and teachers are committed to providing all students with the highest quality instruction and this model provides that opportunity. Our ultimate goal is to improve the classroom experience of our students, leading to a deeper understanding and higher levels of achievement. If you have questions regarding this new model, please contact your child's principal: Erin Probus, Hornet Park Elementary (Grades K-1), Craig Buckler, Central Elementary (Grades 2-3), Tonya Reid, South Grove Intermediate (Grades 4-6). 

We are also continuing many of our excellent educational programs that provide our students with the opportunity to explore, engage, and excel. Beginning with our littlest Hornets at Hornet Park Elementary, the "Passport on Main" program introduces our students to Beech Grove businesses and the jobs people perform in those businesses. Our intermediate, middle school and high school students participate in robotics teams and competitions. Our South Grove students recently participated in the World Robotics Championship in Louisville, Kentucky. Our middle and high school students have active FFA Chapters, with Beech Grove High School students having the second largest volunteer FFA chapter in Indiana! Beech Grove High School students have the opportunity to be involved in our Business and Science Academies, both offering exciting and rigorous courses, including Advanced Interactive Media, Entrepreneurship and New Ventures, marketing, including Sports and Entertainment, Hospitality and Tourism, Merchandising, Video Production, and Television broadcasting. Our Science Academy provides many AP (Advanced Placement) courses including Biology, Chemistry, and Physics. In addition, a Science Research/Independent Study course provides students with the opportunity to attend summer biology camp and work with a Purdue University professor. And, two Project Lead the Way (PLTW) programs: Bio-Medical and Engineering add to providing and engaging, hands-on classroom environment that empowers our providing an engaging, hands-on classroom environment that empowers our students to develop in-demand knowledge and skills they need to thrive in the future. We are proud that Beech Grove City Schools continues to provide a strong foundation for our students because our great teachers and staff, our Board of Education, and the involvement of our parents. 

We look forward to welcoming you on our first day of school, Thursday July 26. Until then, have a safe and fun Summer Break.
