  • Success Starts Here!

Welcome to Van Rensselaer!

Welcome to Van Rensselaer Elementary where “Success Starts Here!” This is the core belief of our teachers, staff, and administration as we have the amazing opportunity to shape the minds, hearts, and bodies of our students to be successful in life.

We are committed to promoting high student achievement through high expectations, a positive, safe learning environment, and a staff committed to students. Van Rensselaer Elementary was recognized by the State of Indiana as an “A” school for the 2015-2016 school year. We are proud of our students and staff for their outstanding effort and achievement. It is our goal to continue to be amazing in every way!

Van Rensselaer Elementary has many qualities that ensure engaging learning. One of significance is our technology. Our corporation has provided Smart Boards for every classroom as well as iPads for every student. This allows our classrooms to have experiences that transcend our school walls and engage students in the learning process.

You play a major role in your child’s academic life and we want to partner with you. Please contact your child’s teacher whenever you have questions or comments. Communication is one of the keys to success!

Thank you for everything you do for your child and for your contribution to our success. We are looking forward to a fantastic 2016-2017 school year!
