Our School

Who We Are:

Northpoint Elementary School is an “A” rated K-5 elementary school part of the Penn-Harris-Madison School Corporation, where excellence in education is pursued and achieved at all levels. We are a community. Our students feel supported and encouraged to reach their full potential. 

Northpoint has also earned the distinction of being ranked Indiana’s #1 for Public Elementary Schools by U.S. News & World Report (data is based on the 2018-2019 and 2019-2020 school years). Click here to learn more.

Our staff of compassionate and engaged teachers receive ongoing professional development in everything from the IDOE state standards to utilizing social emotional learning and restorative practices in the classrooms.

We are a 1:1 Technology district, which means that every student at Horizon, as well as every student in the P-H-M school district, has access to their own Chromebook that they use every day in the classroom (kindergartners use iPads). 

We are the Stars and our school colors are navy blue, silver, and white. Our culture is captured in our school motto, which is “Where every child can reach for the stars”.
