Indian Springs Student Leadership

Our school is our town. Student self-governance is at the heart of Indian Springs and its traditions. This means that students and faculty work together, using the school’s Constitution, to manage and address day-to-day individual and collective responsibilities. Our Student Government then serves as a shared voice in determining how we operate and evolve.

Shared governance means shared responsibility for every student. Elected town officials may manage the more significant issues, but each student makes choices every day, from choosing classes and managing schedules to creating opportunities for identified needs.

Working well with others is a distinct characteristic of an Indian Springs student, and shared government helps contribute to this goal. Elections for Student Government are held twice a year—mid-year and year’s end—to ensure the vibrancy and representative character of Student Government. Candidates for office give speeches at a Town Meeting, and an election follows.

The Student Government is comprised of our Mayor, six Commissioner positions, the Judiciary, and one or two representatives from each class. They meet weekly to tackle issues, embracing our motto of Learning through Living.
