• Sycamore students
Once children learn how to learn, nothing is going to narrow their mind. The essence of teaching is to make learning contagious, to have one idea spark another.

Sycamore School

Within these admission pages is the story of an amazing school, with a unique mission to serve the needs of academically gifted learners. We are the only school of our kind in the state of Indiana, and one of only a few such schools in the nation. 

We communicate our passion for educating gifted children on this website, but nothing compares with experiencing our school first hand. We invite you to contact us to schedule a school visit so that you may come and see for yourself why Sycamore is truly exceptional.
For many years, Sycamore has held the concept of respect as a core value. We’ve thought of respect in terms of “four respects”— respect for self, others, property, and time. We have expanded that concept and identified four core values at Sycamore, still retaining respect as key.

Below are Sycamore’s core values and brief descriptions:
  • Respect: self, others, property, and time
  • Moral Courage: honesty, integrity, right action, purpose, courage
  • Relationships: appreciation, service, community, citizenship
  • Empathy: compassion, kindness, acceptance, diversity
These core values permeate the school, and are taught through academics, after-school programs, athletics, assemblies, and day-to- day interactions. Teachers have integrated these values into curricula, as those have been developed and revised.
