New Haven Intermediate School, one of 14 schools in the East Allen County Schools District, is located in New Haven, Indiana. The school is a primarily suburban and rural school that draws a diverse population. Besides being a neighborhood school, students come from several outlying areas that include both rural and urban areas and feeds into New Haven Middle School and then New Haven High School.

The ethnic make-up of the student body is 76% White, 10% Black, 7% Hispanic, 5% Multi-Racial, 1 % American Indian and 1% Asian. Students living at or below the poverty level, continues to increase. 63% of the students who attend New Haven Intermediate are eligible for free or reduced lunch.

Extensive research has led to the implementation of programs that were implemented last year and will continue to strengthen student achievement in the current school year. Teachers receive training in strategies and assessments that will lead to positive student achievement. Training continues with the assistance of the school Instructional Coaches, Reading Specialist and Response to Intervention Specialist.

New Haven Intermediate serves students in third grade through fifth grade. We offer Character Counts programming, Response to Intervention for our students, a 30 minute Success period each morning, and a 30 minute intervention block for each student every day. The New Haven Intermediate assessment plan incorporates the goals designed into a comprehensive plan for instruction, assessment, evaluation, intervention and reassessment.
