The elementary school at the Indiana School for the Blind and Visually Impaired educates over 60 students in preschool to grade 5. A small class size, hands on activities and highly trained educators create an atmosphere that allows a student who is blind or has low vision the chance to thrive.
The highly trained teachers are trained both in Indiana's core curriculum as well as the unique needs of a blind or low vision student. In addition to working on Expanded Core Curriculum (ECC), (math, science, language arts, etc.) the students participate in activities that entertain as well as prepare them socially. Elementary students participate in activities that include field days, cooking classes, therapeutic horseback riding, visits to the Indianapolis Opera Company, working farms and the Storytelling Festival.
The campus at ISBVI includes a greenhouse, pool, and sprawling grounds with paths that are safe and have easy access to the Monon Trail, one of the State's most beloved greenpaths.
