Principal's Message


Dr. Casey Smitherman

Welcome to South View Elementary, home of the Stars!

South View is home to more than 500 students and 30+ staff members in grades Pre-K-5. We have high expectations for our students and staff.  We will do all that we can to support our students and families to create a school where families are proud to send their students.

At South View, our vision is “Placing Learners First.” We are committed to providing a quality education for all of our students through shared responsibility in a safe and supportive environment. We utilize Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) to promote and recognize the many great things our students do daily. Every day, our students strive to be STARs (Safe, Team players, Accountable and Respectful)!

With the help of our community partners, Ball State University, Meridian Health Services, the 8twelve Coalition and area churches, we will continue to provide our students and families with ongoing support. 

We recently completed an $8 million renovation that brought more modern facilities, increased safety measures and an improved learning environment for our students.  We are very excited to welcome you into our beautiful new school. Fantastic things are taking place at South View and we hope you join us on this amazing journey. Go, Stars!
