Helmsburg Elementary is a Four Star School! Helmsburg Elementary serves 238 students grades Pre-K – 4 and is located in the northwest corner of Brown County, Indiana. Helmsburg Elementary is one of three elementary schools in Brown County.
Pre-K operates five days a week with a morning and afternoon session or all day sessions. All kindergarten students at Helmsburg Elementary School attend our full day program.
We have a Title I program that is school-wide, serving students in grades K-4. We also provide programming and services for our students with special needs or additional educational support. A certified speech-language pathologist, school counselor, occupational therapist, and one registered nurse is shared across the district. Music, art, and physical education teachers are also shared and are at Helmsburg half of the time.
The Helmsburg Elementary school facility has dedicated classrooms for preschool and grade level K-4. Rooms are also available for special education, counseling, speech-language therapy, and reading resource instruction. In addition, the school facilities include a STEM lab, music classroom, art room, outdoor lab, playground, shelter house, library, cafeteria/gymnasium, office, and teacher workroom. The school benefits from being located close to Indiana University. We are host to many university education students each year. This enables us to gain insight into current research and teaching strategies.
The school is the focal point for many community activities. Facilities are used throughout the year for family reunions, basketball, softball, baseball, volleyball, soccer, 4-H, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, and adult recreation.
