“The Indiana Department of Education has released its list of 2014-2015 Four Star Schools. The schools listed had to be in the top 25th percentile in two ISTEP categories and earn an “A” in the state’s accountability ranking.”

Holy Family Catholic School has earned the designation of a 4-star school!

“”I am pleased to recognize Indiana’s Four Star Schools today,” said Glenda Ritz, Indiana’s superintendent of public instruction. “I applaud the hard-work and dedication of the students, educators and families at these exceptional schools as we transitioned to more rigorous college-and-career ready standards and assessments last year.””
