Our School

Who We Are:

Elsie Rogers Elementary School is an “A” rated K-5 elementary school part of the Penn-Harris-Madison School Corporation, where excellence in education is pursued and achieved at all levels. We are one of P-H-M’s five Title I schools. Our students feel supported and encouraged to reach their full potential. 

Elsie Rogers has also earned the distinction of being among Indiana’s Top 30% of Public Elementary Schools by U.S. News & World Report (data is based on the 2018-2019 and 2019-2020 school years). Click here to learn more.

We are the Roadrunners and our school colors are silver and blue. Our culture is captured in our  Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) plan and school motto, which is Responsible. Reliable. Respectful. Ready to Learn. 

Students are connected to each other and the greater school community so that they realize the are part of the Elsie Rogers family. The school as a whole participates in many project that connect students to the greater community.

Our staff of compassionate and engaged teachers receive ongoing professional development in IDOE state standards.

We are a 1:1 Technology district, which means that every student at Elsie Rogers, as well as every student in the P-H-M school district, has access to their own Chromebook that they use every day in the classroom (kindergartners use iPads). 


Built in 1952, Elsie Rogers Elementary School was remodeled in 1968 and underwent another extensive renovation in 1982. A stage was added to the gymnasium in 1999 and the entrance was remodeled in 2003 to enhance building security.
