Welcome to Bainbridge!

  • My Name is Rodney Simpson and I am fortunate to serve as the principal at Bainbridge Elementary. I am currently beginning my 11th year as an elementary school administrator and my 19th year in the elementary education field. I hold a B.A. from Indiana State University, and an M. A. from Ball State University.  I am a graduate of the Indiana Principal's Leadership Academy through Indiana State University.

    At Bainbridge Elementary we believe in “Excellence Every Day in Every Way.” Our mission is to create a community of learners by transforming education to meet all needs.

    Bainbridge Elementary is part of the North Putnam Community School Corporation. We serve approximately 340 Pre- School to 5th grade. Bainbridge Staff is filled with dedicated teachers who are serious about reaching the educational needs of the students. Students are immersed in a warm, welcoming, and safe school community where high expectations are set.

    Bainbridge has a focus on academic achievement that provides students with a variety of opportunities to engage in their learning. Our students are taught to collaborate at all levels and are expected to apply their thinking in cooperation with their fellow students throughout their years at Bainbridge. Students experience service learning opportunities throughout the school year. Bainbridge is proud to have a Student Council who is recognized as an Honor Council with the Indiana Association of Student Councils.

    Our students are supported by a great community who helps them immerse themselves in all subject areas and extra-curricular programs. Bainbridge Elementary is the place for you if you want your child to experience a staff that is focused on the individual needs of each child, displays a positive environment, and a safe campus. I see students at Bainbridge happy, enthusiastic, and excited about the learning they are experiencing.
