How to use Indianapolis Monthly’s 2013 School Guide:All information—except private school tuition and most private-school enrollment figures—is from the Indiana Department of Education. ISTEP+ and ECA scores, enrollment numbers for public schools, and ISTEP+ and ECA scores for private schools are from the 2011-2012 school year. Enrollment and tuition for private schools are from the 2012-2013 school year. In the 2011-2012 school year, Indiana's overall ISTEP+ passing rate was 75.1%, and its overall ECA passage rate was 70.2%.Charter schools are public schools that are granted control of their own curricula by the state, under an agreement that they will meet certain performance standards. Many are aimed toward specific educational purposes. As public schools, charter schools are tuition-free.ISTEP+/ECA passage rates are listed as provided by the Indiana Department of Education.About Colleges and Universities: Costs listed are the approximate fees for the 2012-2013 school year unless otherwise noted. Costs may vary based on majors, residency, and other factors. Financial aid is frequently available, and most schools encourage all parents to apply. All phone numbers are area code 317 unless indicated. The list does not include all of Indiana's colleges and universities.A Note on Test Scores: The ISTEP+ exam is given to grades 3–8, and the figures here, from the 2011-2012 school year, are the percentages of all tested students passing both English/Language Arts and Math sections. At the high school level, students are now tested with end-of-course assessments, or ECAs. Unlike the standard exams once given to 10th-grade students, ECAs are administered not by grade level, but when a student completes the courses being tested. This makes comparing school-to-school results difficult; for the most valid comparisons, the DOE recommends looking at data at the corporation level, rather than individual schools. The ECA percentages listed here reflect the number of tested students who passed both English and Algebra 1. Test scores are omitted if they were unavailable from the DOE, as in the cases of some private schools and schools with small class sizes.For more information on specific schools, visit this "Accountability" page for the Indiana Department of Education.
