Farmersville Elementary School, located in Posey County of Southwestern Indiana, borders Illinois and Kentucky and is one of five schools in the Metropolitan School District of Mt Vernon. Our 242 students comprise our enrollment and range from three year-olds (developmentally delayed preschoolers) through 5th grade. Farmersville earned the "A" state rating the last five years and the Four Star rating the past two years. Our staff members believe in excellent teaching, with an intentional concentration on academic standards, which yields excellent performance. Our students benefit from cohesive instruction and "hands on" learning. In addition to core curriculum, students attend music, library, PE, art, guidance, and enrichment classes. We have guest speakers, tutors and volunteers. All grades participate in field trips, theatrical plays, benevolent fundraisers, food drive,s and festivals. Equipping our students with technological richness is an additional strength. Students benefit from 1:1 iPads, multiple computer labs, ActivTables, Promethean Boards in all classrooms, and the latest technology instructional tools. Our rich technology also supports differentiation efforts. Through numerous instructional software applications, students progress at their individual learning rates. Furthermore, novelty builds enthusiasm about coming to school. Students and staff enjoy fun dress days and celebrations of milestones/successes. Energizing activities offer a deviation from the ordinary routine, creating anticipation and excitement for all. We love our students and are committed to our district mission. We have strong leadership, skilled teachers and support staff, a supportive community, and great results. Farmersville Elementary School's vision and legacy will continue to demonstrate "Falcon Pride."
