My name is Dan Zylstra, and I am thrilled to be the principal of this wonderful school.
Our school is located in the wide open spaces of western Pulaski county between the towns of Francesville and Medaryville along US Rt. 421. We are a K-5 building with a population of about 350 students. We are quite proud to offer our students a myriad of programs for our small school setting. Our average class size is right around 20 students. We offer full day kindergarten to all students with no tuition cost. Every student in K-5 gets music, art, gym, library, and computer. We even have a half-sized olympic swimming pool. We are also fortunate to have a full time school counselor. In summary, we have a wonderful school and consider ourselves a hidden educational gem on the northern Indiana plain.
We have made many recent improvements to our website, which I hope you will find useful. You can also find information on our Facebook page. In addition to school-wide information, each teacher's contact information should be readily available. Whether you email, call, or write a note, I encourage great communication between parents and teachers. Please be sure to contact your child's teacher first in the event of a question or concern. I firmly believe student success depends on teachers and parents working together!
Thanks again for visiting and please do not hesitate to contact our school if there is any way we can be of assistance.
Dan Zylstra, Principal
West Central Elementary School
