This week, the ISI community celebrates a very exciting anniversary: Two years since the public launch of the ONE ISI campaign! While the past two years have been full of unexpected hurdles, our community came together to support the campaign to unify our campus with the construction of a new lower school building. To celebrate this anniversary, take a look back at all the ISI community has accomplished!
With less than two months of the school year completed, ISI students have already participated in multiple college representative visits, application and essay workshops, and parent information nights. College preparation begins early at ISI with grade-specific programming, group tours, and individual meetings. On average, ISI hosts representatives from 60-100 universities each year.
The International School of Indiana (ISI) community greeted this school year with great anticipation because of the return of many activities suspended for health and safety reasons since March of 2020. With COVID-19 safety protocols in place, greatly missed opportunities that enhance the experience in the classroom have resumed. Recently, grade 3 students traveled to Flat Rock Camp in St Paul, Indiana, for a field trip to wrap up the “Who We Are” Primary Years Programme unit of inquiry.
On August 25, International School of Indiana (ISI) seniors completed their Biology Internal Assessment. The Internal Assessment is an independent, student-designed lab which lasts an entire school day. The first month of the school year is spent preparing for this assessment, which builds on concepts and skills learned throughout the high school experience at ISI. The Internal Assessment is designed to challenge students to plan, carry out, and evaluate an investigation.
Last week, the International School of Indiana (ISI) community kicked off the first day of the 2021-2022 school year with an annual tradition, the Bell Ringing Ceremony. The start of a new school year brings a bittersweet feeling to many in our community - the end of summer but the beginning of an exciting, promising new school year. On August 10, those bittersweet feelings affected many in our community as students began their last first day at the 49th Street Building, the longtime home of our Lower School.
With one week left until the first day of the 2021-2022 school year, we at ISI are excited to welcome families back to the 49th Street and the Michigan Road campuses. This year, not only is the ISI community celebrating a return to in-person learning for all students, we are also celebrating our final year on two campuses.
