The School Community
Hendry Park Elementary School is one of four elementary schools in the Metropolitan School District of Steuben County. We are located in Angola, Indiana in the northeast corner of the state. The certified faculty at Hendry Park includes twenty-eight full time employees. In addition, we have twenty-two full time support staff personnel (including custodians and food services) and three part-time personnel. We provide special education services to students in four disability areas: Mild Cognitive Disabilities, Specific Learning Disabilities, Emotional Disabilities, and Speech and Language Impairments. One of our full-time faculty members is an English Language (EL) teacher. Our facility was constructed in 1954 and has been remodeled and added on to a number of times. The most recent renovations and additions were made in 2000-2001.
In addition to English, some students enrolled at Hendry Park also speak Spanish and Arabic. We embrace all of our students and work diligently to meet their needs. Our school community is enhanced not only by the diverse student population, dedicated faculty and support staff but also by our Parent Teacher Organization and partnerships with local organizations such as Trine University, Steuben County Literacy Coalition, Junior Achievement, the Dekko Foundation, Psi Iota Xi, the City of Angola Police Department, Steuben County Sheriff's Department, and parent and community volunteers.
In the most recent remodeling project, Hendry Park acquired a beautiful media center/library. Every classroom in the school has a Promethean interactive white board or a large screen television. We have a community/multi-purpose room near the commons area, which is used on a daily basis for large group instruction, guest speakers, faculty and staff meetings, and professional development in-services.
The city of Angola is located in the northeastern corner of the state of Indiana. It is situated just south of the 80/90 toll road in rolling hills, and is approximately 10 miles from both the Michigan and Ohio state lines. Angola is one of several small cities in Steuben County, a county noted for its 101 lakes. The presence of these lakes and Angola’s proximity to both the toll road and Interstate 69 has established Angola as a resort area for vacationers. Pokagon State Park, just north and west of Angola, is a resource, which provides our county community and its visitors with a natural setting for recreation and relaxation throughout the year.
People often describe Angola, Indiana as a “good place to raise children.” The staff of Hendry Park Elementary School takes pride in our city, and we strive to nurture our students and enhance our community by providing our students with the best education possible.
