Welcome to New Palestine Intermediate School. Our school is dedicated to serving 5th and 6th-grade students in the Community School Corporation of 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 our remediation and enrichment activities. We are a Professional Learning Community that works collaboratively to provide the very best education for all of our students. 

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, coding, gardening, cooking, technology, robotics, and many other options.   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 after school club activities such as robotics team, archery club, math team, spelling team, visions music, visions art, bell choir, environmental club, running club, gardening club, math club, states club, capitals club and many others. 

Education is not my profession; education is my passion.
