    I have been a very active memeber of Cynthia Heights PTA they have been the #1 PTA in the state of Indiana for several years. The principal staff and parents do a great job of taking care of my children.

    I graduated from Cynthia Heights School in 1959. Ours was the first class to graduate from it that went all the way from 5th grade to 8th grade. (That was before they had Middle Schools) I went to German Township School up to the 5th grade and then moved along to Cynthia Heights when it was built. I really enjoy my time there. I had some really great teachers. Mr. Lindsey was the principle at that time. Great school.

    Both of my children went here. We moved before they could finish their time. I have nothing but wonderful things to say about the staff PTA and everyone involved! We were amazed with all the help we were given for health issues. Cynthia Heights is one of a kind. We were proud to be Wildcats. The extra curricular activities are fantastic. Book bucks AR club math club basketball chess club oh I could go on and on! Love and miss Cynthia Heights!

    I Highly recommend Cynthia Heights Elementary for any family. The teachers help the children to do their best. They are great motivators and very creative in their teaching. They communicate with us parents often and especially when a child is struggling. Their are so many active parents. The PTA also does a large variety of activities for the children. There are several extracurricular activities for each child such as basketball wrestling cheer choir and is just listing a small few. The music teacher works with the kids on a Variety (talent) Show. I have experienced another elementary school with an older son. He was at a very good school and did very well. I have a son that has just left Cynthia Heights and one that has a fews years to go. I have to say the experience here at Cynthia Heights out weighs the other school by far.

    I love this school too. I switched my kids to Cynthia Heights by choice and I am glad I did. If I wasn't thrill with Cynthia Heights I would be home schooling my kids. I think the school gives them more than I could as home school parent with a Masters Degree.

    Cynthia heights is a great school. They were the only four star school this year. They also do well with the extracurricular activities. They always have several parents to help with the things that need to be done.

    Cynthia Heights has highly skilled staff who want the best for every child and will provide help if needed. The teachers also give parents advise on what needs to be done at home. I found out that my son has some minor problems that can be helped but it took a special teacher to do one on one teaching with him. My son started wrestling this past year and the parental support was great. There are several different extracurricular activities for each child such as soccer basketball wrestling cheer choir and many others. The music teacher also works with the kids on a talent show. Many parents help at the school during book fair talent show wrestling and many other task are done by parents. It is just a big family school.
