The 40 Acre Campus

Evansville Day School is located at the corner of North Green River and Lynch Roads in Evansville, Indiana.  

The school relocated to the current 40-acre campus in 1968 when the original building was constructed.  While the physical plant has expanded several times all of the buildings have remained connected under one roof.  As with the educational programs, the facilities create an educational culture found nowhere else in the area.  One of the main features of campus is the sculpture, created by John Matt in 1969.  

Day School enjoys ample athletic facilities including five tennis courts (2013) and two soccer fields in the front of campus and a large varsity gymnasium with locker and weight rooms.

Thanks to the vision of Day School’s founders, our campus’ best attraction is the 40-acre forest located immediately behind the main building and full of beautiful wooded trails and outdoor learning spaces.  The woods are used by students in all divisions, most notably the all-school hike in October and Gnome Night in the Lower School in October.  When visiting the trails in November, one might even catch a glimpse of Ted E. Dayschule, the school's sneaky, resident Gnome who lives in the forest and plays host to the annual Gnome Night.  Follow Ted's adventures on twitter by clicking here.

Other notable Evansville Day School facility features:

The Traylor Atrium (2013) serves as a grand entrance, gathering spot for group meetings and presentations, and home for the grand piano (donated by the Dodd family). Each year, the Global Cardboard Challenge and Holiday Gingerbread Project are prominently on display.  

Four on-campus computer labs are highlighted by the Broadcast Journalism Center featuring Mac computers and the latest video production equipment.  In 2015, Day School received a generous donation and was able to transform the existing library space into the Sieboldt Innovation Lab.  This newly redesigned space features rolling whiteboards, a laser cutter and 3D printer, butcher block tables, and many more tools to inspire creativity, collaboration, and to foster the entrepreneurial spirit.

The recent Invest, Expand, Transform capital campaign made it possible to enlarge and renovate Primary School classrooms to meet the needs of 21st Century students.  Additionally, one Primary School classroom was tranformed into a library featuring an Epic Lego Wall to stimulate creativity and collaboration in a very fun way!
