School Notes

  • Our small classes and dedicated teachers recruited from the USA and from around the world ensure personal attention in a culturally diverse setting. Children in our pre-elementary program are taught in either Spanish, French or Mandarin for most of the day. This total immersion approach builds remarkable fluency at a young age.
  • In 2011, ISI became the first school in Indiana to be authorized by the International Baccalaureate (IB) Organization to offer all three IB programs, and only the second school in the entire Midwest to achieve this distinction.
  • ISI is the 14th school in the United States to be authorized for all three programs and only the 8th private school.
  • High School Graduation Rate: 100%
  • College Attendance Rate: 100%
  • IB Diploma Results (Class of 2016) placed ISI among top performing high schools in the USA, and among the top performing international schools around the world
  • Our graduating class of 33 students in 2016 was offered $4.3 million in academic merit scholarships and these students are now studying at some of the finest universities locally, nationally and internationally

This school is a the best environment I could have my children in in Indianapolis. The teachers, staff and administrators are incredible-they are constantly innovating new ways to develop curriculum that has meaningful, long-term impacts for our children's futures--and all done in a language immersion environment! After 5 years and with 3 children here, I highly recommend ISI to anyone who values culture, language, diversity, systems thinking and compassion. The new Head of School is a dynamic leader who will continue to bring about positive change as well.
