Welcome to Beardsley Elementary
Beardsley Elementary is a small neighborhood school, with a rich Elkhart history. With an enrollment of 419 students, Beardsley is one of the smallest schools in the Elkhart Community Schools district, but is big on character and heart. We are home to a caring staff who feels like an extended family, providing students, parents and one another with support, acceptance and encouragement. Beardsley has a well-established partnership with the Boys and Girls Club of Elkhart County, and is adjacent to the only stand-alone Boys and Girls Club in the city of Elkhart. Many of our students find a home at our school during the day and the Boys and Girls Club after school.
We look forward to hearing from you and showing you around Beardsley!
