For the sixth consecutive year, Bishop Chatard High School has achieved a Four Star rating from the state of Indiana. BCHS is among 234 schools statewide, 14 from the Archdiocese of Indianapolis, that received this designation, according to the Indiana Department of Education.
In order to achieve Four Star School status, a school must be in the top 25th percentile of schools in two ISTEP-based categories (Language Arts and Math), and it must be in the top 25th percentile in each grade tested. A qualifying school must have earned the highest designation (A rating) in the state’s accountability system and be accredited by the Indiana Department of Education.
The list of Indiana schools named 2017-2018 Four Star Schools was announced by the Department of Education on March 8.
“The Four Star award is something that teachers, support staff, administration, parents and students should be proud of, Principal Joe Hansen said. “To achieve this exceptional award takes a total team effort, and I am 100 percent confident we will always continue to do our best to love and serve the students at our school.”
Our work at Bishop Chatard is never done, and our commitment to Catholic education continues even after achieving this highest of honors, Mr. Hansen added.
