Here’s an idea for you to think about:
Imagine a school that gives bright, engaged students the tools and the responsibility to continually improve themselves and their school. Partner these students with an accomplished and nurturing faculty that challenges them academically. Add in a healthy dose of mutual respect and the encouragement to make independent, informed decisions. Help round out their academic experiences with exciting athletic and artistic opportunities. In short, give these students an excellent preparation for their life after high school.
What would you see at such a school?
Well, you would see a college preparatory school whose graduates attend some of the most selective colleges and universities in the country. A body of students with the thinking skills and flexibility of mind to be successful in the complex, globalized world that is upon us. Young people who recognize the importance of managing their time. Students who appreciate that it is possible to play on a State Championship athletic team, practice the violin, and get good grades. And finally a group of learners who understand that they are involved in an educational “team effort” with a supportive cast of caring adults.
Do all of this on a large, beautiful and safe campus just outside a major city, but with a small, friendly student body that is accepting of the individual. Foster a strong sense of connectedness and a realization of a membership in, and collective responsibility for, school, local, national, and global communities.
It sounds like a great story.
Welcome to the reality that is Indian Springs School.
My job as the Director of Indian Springs School is to raise the bar. I want to raise our students’ success both inside and outside of the classroom. I want to raise their awareness of the world in which we live and treat it with respect. I want to raise parents’ understanding of what a superb educational environment their child enjoys.
I want to raise your expectations about what a great school should be.
