Principal's Office

Hello and welcome to the South Knox Elementary School's web page. We are proud of our school and are pleased to be able to share information about it with you through Internet technology. South Knox Elementary school has sustained a tradition of educational excellence since it was established in 1967 as a result of the school consolidation movement in the state of Indiana. That tradition continues today as a result of teachers and support staff who are dedicated to providing their students with the best possible education. Our students are hard working and their families place great importance on education and support the school and its many activities. Our rural setting fosters a family-like school environment that produces a safe and happy place to learn. The combined efforts of school, home, and community have yielded many benefits to the young people of South Knox. Our teachers believe and emphasize the basic skills and work diligently with students to help them achieve. Our achievement test scores and ISTEP+ scores have been consistently well above average. Our school has received many honors over the past years. A few examples are:

  • Indiana School Improvement Award - a seven time winner
  • Indiana Four Star School Award - a two time winner
  • Education World's "Cool School Award"

It is our goal to provide the best possible education for our students in a creative, yet disciplined learning environment. We set high expectations and let children know that we expect their very best effort. As pleased as we are with our successes, we are continually striving to improve. We invite your input and hope that you will become an active participant in our school's activities. Only by working together can we continue to provide our students with educational excellence. -Alan R. Drew, Principal
