Overview

SDInteriorPageGirl1Life at South Dearborn Community Schools

Exciting. Engaging. Energizing. Educational. Just a few ways our students describe a typical day at South Dearborn Community School Corporation. Students thrive in our small town, community-based culture located within a safe, secure and beautiful campus. It's within this setting that our experienced & dedicated teachers strive to cultivate a love of learning at an early age.

Students thrive in our small town, community-based culture located within a safe, secure and beautiful campus. At South Dearborn, students are engaged in a progressive, innovative atmosphere that is student-centered and highly interactive. Our students enjoy the best of all worlds with a school culture that provides an ideal mix of academics, arts and athletics.

From an academic perspective, our school corporation recently had the highest ISTEP score increase compared to other area schools. Our school corporation has also received an AdvancED Accreditation – which is a designation that shows our commitment to academic excellence. These are just a few indication of the commitment to academic achievement that you'll find throughout the entire South Dearborn Community School Corporation.

We believe that our parents and students deserve access to resources that will help them get the most of our their school experience. With that in mind, South Dearborn schools cover a portion of every student's textbook fees.

The teachers at AES are simply amazing. It is a wonderful feeling to send my children to school each day knowing they are in such great care."
