About the Provider

Description: Daniel Wertz is located on the Westside of Evansville. Our school has a rich history and strong bond to the Howell Community. Prominently displayed in the main hallway are memorabilia and class pictures (dating to 1944) that tell the story of Daniel Wertz School. In those photos many faces past and present represent the multi-generations of students who have attended Daniel Wertz and speak to the pride and stability of our neighborhood school.

Daniel Wertz is a Pre- K through 5 school. Our students feed into Perry Heights Middle School, progressing on to Reitz High School-home of the mighty panthers! Daniel Wertz also houses Little Panther World, an early childhood education center.
