Welcome

Tekoppel is located in the heart of Evansville's westside and is rich in traditions. Our doors opened in 1909, and the original building still stands and is fully operational. It is the oldest original and complete structure which is still fully operational in Evansville. The old building houses our second and third grade classrooms and rooms by our PTA. A "new" addition was attached to the original building in 1960. Kindergarten, first, fourth, fifth, gym, art, and music classrooms and our cafeteria, media center, and offices are located in the new building.

Approximately 501 students attend Tekoppel in kindergarten through fifth grade. The Tekoppel faculty and staff consists of 22 homeroom teachers, an art teacher, a vocal music teacher, a physical education teacher, two special education teachers, a speech therapist, a special education assistant, a kindergarten assistant, two prime time assistants, two RtI interventionists, a media aide, five cafeteria staff members, three custodians, six daycare staff members, a secretary, a nurse, a counselor, and a principal. 

As you enter Tekoppel School and walk down the halls, you can see how our faculty interacts with students in a caring atmosphere. Students are treated with courtesy and respect while being engaged in learning activities to foster creativity, build skills and concepts, and master Indiana Academic Standards. Through the implementation of PBIS, students follow our TIGER rules and PRIDE expectations to keep our school safe and learning first and foremost each and every day! At Tekoppel we believe: Everyone, Every Child, Everyday!
