They are equally empowered to transform their communities by embracing, respecting, and valuing others and connecting across a range of differences.

School founding and History

In 1991, an Indiana Humanities Council task force was established to address Indiana’s position in a changing world.  The Task Force report, entitled Indiana in a Changing World – A Strategy for Action, emphasized the need for Indiana to:

  • Participate in the world community and world economy
  • Attract foreign companies and specialist employees
  • Make Indiana students more internationally competitive

One of the report’s major recommendations led to the creation of the International School of Indiana in 1994.

Since its founding in 1994, ISI has grown into a 3-year-old through Grade 12 school of ~500 students that operates on one unified campus.
