There are moments when our International Baccalaureate values compel us to address matters that deeply affect members of our school community and, more broadly, our city, state, country, or the world.

This past weekend's wave of nationwide protests following the death of George Floyd in Minnesota, including those staged here in Indianapolis, is one of these moments because it speaks to the heart of our mission at the International School of Indiana. As we seek to nurture principled, open-minded, caring, and reflective young people, we trust that our students will grow into the next generation of leaders and be well-equipped to foster a more inclusive, equitable, and compassionate society in the future.

When we inquire about the experiences of others, communicate with each other, and seek out balanced solutions to our mutual problems, we can and will build a better world. We hold these values dear at ISI and hope for their wider acceptance in the wake of the events of the past week.
