    This school has a problem with bullying. The teachers and administrators approach is to ignore it.

    IPS has gotten a bad reputation as a whole but school 67 has quality teachers who really teach. I moved far away from IPS boundaries but if I had to let my kids go to an IPS school I would definately pick 67. It's also got better special education services than the township schools around Indianapolis. The school is very old and needs air conditioning. The Montesorri program is good but you have to sign up for it really early to get in.

    67 also has a Montessori program. Teachers really care and give much of their spare time to enhance the children's learning experience without pay. Some families pay BIG $ for private Montessori schools here it is free!

    School 67 is the best school my kids ever been at and i'm glad there at a school 67 where there's a lot of teachers who care and they teach them right from wrong and i think 67 needs to win school of the year because theres teachers in there who are real great and I'm proud of that school. Theres teacher who help kids with speech and a lot more the office ladies and the princibals are very nice and they teach you not to be bullying other kids because someone can get hurt. they teach you to be nice to one another and one day I hope steven foster gets a award for the best school even if they dont I think they're the best.
