Message from the Principal

Dear Indian Hills Community,

We are super excited to begin another school year and can't wait to see your students grow!  Our team has worked hard to prepare for this year and, with your help, we will see great things.  A crucial part of school success is our ability to work together with families to best meet the needs of all individual students. Please know that we value your input and need your ideas.  Together we can make IHE a great place for students!                                                                                                                   

Yours in education,

Ryan Dashner

    I am proud to announce that Indian Hills Elementary School has again received an "A" rating from the State Public Education Department.  Students, teachers and families worked very hard last year and their hard work paid off.  Indian Hills doubled their proficiency scores in most classrooms.  We are continuing to better preparing students to be successful in the future! The entire GMCS district is also celebrating today because there are no schools that received an "F" rating.  Congratulations to all the other schools in our county and thank you families for all you have done to contribute to our success ~Mr. Dashner
