Student Life

Clubs & Activities

At Indian Springs School, every club is student-managed. 
Responsibility rests with its student members, who collaborate with a faculty advisor. This reflects our belief in individual and group initiative and ensures that clubs are expressions of student engagement. Clubs and activities may change from year to year, but they mirror the interests, concerns, and values of those who drive the experiences forward: our students.
