Principal's Message

NPI Principal Vincent Meo

Welcome to New Palestine Intermediate School.  Our school is dedicated to serving 5th and 6th-grade students in southern Hancock County.

The mission of New Palestine Intermediate School is to provide students with compelling and innovative learning experiences, empowering them to be successful lifelong learners.

New Palestine Intermediate will provide a curriculum that is innovative and engaging to all students.  Our goal is for students to have the opportunity to explore their interests through Academics, Innovative Arts, Unified Arts, and Extracurricular Activities.

New Palestine Intermediate teachers know the importance of making learning engaging while teaching the Indiana Academic Standards.  Data will guide their remediation and enrichment activities. We are a Professional Learning Community that works collaboratively to provide the very best education.

Students will have the opportunity to explore their interests by selecting a different course of study each quarter (Innovative Arts).  Teachers will offer mini-courses that could include music, dance, band (6th grade in the fourth quarter), community service projects, technology, or robotics.   It is important for our students to have a variety of learning opportunities.

Unified Arts at New Palestine Intermediate School will include art, music, fitness, media, and innovation.  Our Innovation Specialist will teach exciting and engaging lessons that will incorporate technology, coding, science, and exploration. The Innovation Specialist will also assist the classroom teachers with planning and teaching.

New Palestine Intermediate students may choose to participate in a variety of extracurricular activities such as robotics, archery, M.A.T.H. bowl, spell bowl, Vision Music, Vision Art, Bell Choir, environmental club, running club, and many more.

Education is not my profession; it is my passion.

I look forward to welcoming your students to New Palestine Intermediate in 2018-19.
