Hamilton Southeastern School District is the primary school system for students living in Fishers, Indiana and portions of neighboring Noblesville, Indiana. The district consists of twelve elementary schools (K-4), three intermediate schools (5-6), three junior high schools (7-8), and two high schools (9-12). Hamilton Southeastern is home to the Hamilton Southeastern Royals and the Fishers Tigers. Hamilton Southeastern is the fastest growing school corporation in Indiana with 17,140 students in the 2008-09 school year increasing from 10,716 in 2002. Hamilton Southeastern is the 5th largest school district in Indiana.[2] Its schools have very high ratings. Twelve of the eighteen schools in the district are four star schools as rated by the Indiana Department of Education. [3] Of the six that are not four star schools, four are too new to be rated yet. Hamilton Southeastern High School and Hamilton Southeastern Junior High School were named No Child Left Behind Blue Ribbon Schools by the US Department of Education, only given to schools in each level annually.[4][5] The district had an 23.1% higher passing rate on the math/English combined ISTEP+ tests when compared to the state average in 2006-07.[6] Currently the school district is in a lawsuit allegedly over not preventing bullying of one of the students that resulted in a suicide.
