Achieving Our Personal Best in Pursuit of Excellence

Message from Superintendent Dr. Lantrip

Welcome to New Palestine, Indiana and the Community School Corporation of Southern Hancock County.  We are a mid-sized community, nestled just outside of suburban Indianapolis. Located approximately 20 minutes east of downtown Indianapolis, we have the advantage of being a rural community with access to all a big city has to offer. You will find easy access to the arts including the Indianapolis Repertory Theatre, the Indianapolis Symphony, and the Indianapolis Art Museum. Families appreciate an easy commute to the Indianapolis Zoo and the Indianapolis Children’s Museum. Sports enthusiasts like being able to go to watch the Indiana Pacers, Indianapolis Colts, as well as enjoying a family outing to Victory Field for an Indians baseball game.

New Palestine is a growing community with established neighborhoods as well as new developments. You are likely to be surrounded by or live near farmland. A charming and quaint town, New Palestine is home to those who want the benefits of a small community but the luxuries of a big city.

Among the many reasons families choose to locate in New Palestine, one of the biggest is the school system. At Southern Hancock Schools, we strive for academic excellence. Your child’s education is our top priority. Our goal is to ensure that your child succeeds.

Southern Hancock Schools has an overall Indiana Department of Education letter grade of “A.” New Palestine High School was named a National Blue Ribbon School and we are also proud of our 4-Star Schools. The district offers 1:1 Apple technology in all grades pre-kindergarten through Grade 12. We make learning fun and are excited to educate your children on their individual paths to future success.

As the new Superintendent of Southern Hancock Schools, my vision is to continue to build on the past traditions of the school corporation. I am pleased to join a district with clear goals and an established vision. I am prepared also to share my experience to help grow these goals and continue moving the school corporation in a positive direction. Thank you for the opportunity to lead this district, join the community and serve the families in the Community School Corporation of Southern Hancock County. I look forward to a great 2014-2015
school year!
