The MYP Personal Project is an independent and significant piece of work completed by students in grade 10. It allows students to showcase their skills, talents, and personal growth while engaging with real-world issues they care about. The project spans several months, during which students work independently to plan, execute, and reflect on their chosen endeavors.
You won’t find another school like ours in Indiana or even the Midwest. The combination of International Baccalaureate® (IB) programs, immersion and dual language learning in French, Mandarin, Spanish, and English, and enhanced cultural experiences make our academics distinct.
It is the smaller classes, personalized attention, and differentiated instruction that makes our approach to education so successful in preparing students to be inquiring, knowledgeable, confident, and caring young people ready for college and beyond.

Enrichment & Childcare
International School of Indiana provides quality before- and after-school care on each scheduled school day of the academic year, and child care is also available on some select days that school is not in session.
Enrichment classes are also available after school for students. Activities rotate each quarter, and include a wide variety of activities like specialized arts classes, cooking classes, choir, different athletics classes, STEM-based activities, and cultural experiences.
At the International School of Indiana (ISI), we strive for balance in the lives of our students. We believe that body, mind, and spirit work best when they’re working together.
So, we offer over 20 athletic teams annually for students in grades 5 to 12, and joining a team is as simple as attending the first scheduled practice. Through our open participation policy, ISI provides athletic opportunities to all our students. Every student is encouraged to take part in athletics as a participant, team manager, or supporter.
clubs & ActivitIes
ISI grade 3 students just finished their unit, How We Organize Ourselves: responsible use of money may determine how people live. The unit works as an inquiry into the interconnectedness of human-made systems and communities, the structure and function of organizations, societal decision-making, economic activities, and their impact on humankind and the environment.
Varsity Soccer had a very successful and rewarding season, finishing with one of their best records in recent years and overcoming many challenges they faced throughout the fall. The team spent the season working on playing purposeful, pro-active soccer.
With a small but mighty team, both the Varsity and Middle School Cross Country teams were able to find ways to improve, break records, and have a great time throughout the season. The Cross Country athletes spent their season pushing themselves to gain endurance and speed. Grade 10 runners Ashwin Long and Dennis Lemoine worked hard throughout the season, reached multiple PRs, and made it to regionals and sectionals, respectively.
The Grade 5/6 Volleyball team started the season with only two returning players after many of their past teammates moved up to the Grade 7/8 Volleyball team. This opened up opportunities for new grade 5 and even some eager grade 4 players to join the team and have their first experience with ISI Gryphon Athletics.
The Diploma Programme is a rigorous pre-university course of study designed for students in their final two years of high school. It is a broad-based, two-year course that aims to prepare students for university by encouraging students to be knowledgeable and inquiring but also caring and compassionate. There is a strong emphasis on encouraging students to develop intercultural understanding, open-mindedness, and the attitudes necessary to respect and evaluate a range of points of view.
The Extended Essay is an opportunity for students to gain experience with the independent research and writing skills expected at university. Students investigate a topic they personally care about from class and create a 4,000-word piece of independent research over the course of a year.
