Pioneer Vision

The Hoosier Prairie Elementary School faculty will educate each student to his or her potential and will work with families and community members to help all children become productive citizens and lifelong learners.


Hoosier Prairie Elementary School is accredited by AdvancED through the National Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement (NCA CASI).  This framework for comprehensive school improvement supports Public Law 221 efforts and "No Child Left Behind" accountability requirements.  More importantly, it validates the faculty's ongoing efforts regarding continuous improvement in learning and teaching at Hoosier Prairie Elementary School.
