I am happy with my child's education at Joan Martin. However, the classrooms are sorely overcrowded and there is no money in the district to provide aides, so you can imagine the teacher/student load. Teachers are accessible and if you are persistent, you can be as involved as you would like.

When I read that Joan Martin was one of the top rated elementary schools in the state of Indiana I moved into the district immediately in hopes of the best education for my future children. Now that my daughter has entered Kindergarten, two kids and five years later, I get a first look at the school myself. The building and grounds are beautiful since they are brand new. There are three playgrounds with age appropriate play equipment that span the grades. All the classrooms seem more than well equipped for the very populated classes. The front doors are only able to be open with a buzzer-intercom system from the inside, insuring nobody comes in and walks away with your child or any of their high-tech goodies. However, parents are discouraged from being in the classes and are not encouraged to be involved as much as I would like. After signing up to be a room mother I have yet to be allowed into the room during class. It almost seems like your child is unreachable with all that advanced technology keeping them locked inside.

PROS: all new facility and materials, friendly staff
CONS: not a place for "room moms"
