Among the standout schools in the district, Riverview Elementary School stands out with the highest performance across multiple metrics, including a 3-out-of-5-star rating on SchoolDigger and the highest proficiency rates in English Language Arts and Math compared to other elementary schools. West Side Middle School also ranks highly, with a 2-out-of-5-star rating and the highest proficiency rates among the middle schools.

However, the data also reveals significant disparities in student performance and school quality within the Elkhart Community Schools district. Chronic absenteeism rates are high, and proficiency rates on ILEARN and SAT assessments vary widely, with some schools, such as Mary Daly Elementary, having extremely low proficiency rates. Addressing these inequities and implementing targeted strategies to support underperforming schools and students will be crucial for improving educational outcomes for all students in the district.
