For yet another year, Plainfield Schools fared well in the annual Indiana Department of Education rankings. We are pleased to announce that Brentwood, Central, Clarks Creek and Van Buren elementaries, along with Plainfield Community Middle School, have been recognized as Four Star Schools.
In order to be considered, a school must have received an “A” for the 2015-2016 school year, and at least 95% of students must have taken the ISTEP English/Language Arts (ELA) and Math tests. Grades 3-8 must be ranked in the top 25% of schools in the state, for ELA and Math individually and combined, and for each of the six grades.
In addition, the Class of 2018 must have earned a ranking in the top 25th percentile of Math and ELA end-of-course assessments, both individually and combined.
“We are pleased to be included as one of the state’s most prestigious schools,” stated Superintendent Scott Olinger. “Plainfield is a community that values education, and this is one of several ways that we reflect that commitment,” he continued. “We have outstanding teachers who show tremendous innovation and dedication, and our students come to school prepared to do the hard work that will help them succeed in whatever path they might choose.”
