“Success – Nothing Less!”

We are a proud member of the Indianapolis Public Schools community of schools serving grades Pre-K through 6.

Welcome to Clarence Farrington School 61, the home of dedicated educators, vibrant learning, and an active community. Led by Principal Jona M. Atkins, we believe in setting high expectations, delivering quality instruction, and fostering high levels of student engagement.

We’re proud to announce that we are developing an Arts Integrated Curriculum for the 2023/24 school year. Students will have enriched access to Music, Art, and Dance, embracing our theme for the year: “Success – Nothing Less!”

As part of the Eagle Dale Community, we value and nourish our growing relationships with our 12 community partners. We also emphasize the importance of restorative practice to meet the diverse needs of our students.
