School founding and History
In 1991, an Indiana HumanitiesCouncil task force wasestablished to address Indiana’sposition in a changingworld.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 some 600 students that operates on two campuses.
