Since it opened in 1994, the International School of Indiana has been
committed to its mission of offering a rigorous academic program within
a bilingual and multicultural environment. Students currently have
a choice of two language tracks: English/Spanish or English/French.
The school actively recruits students with diverse national, ethnic
and socio-economic backgrounds, and offers financial help to qualified
applicants who could not otherwise attend.
The International School of Indiana pre-school program (age 3-kindergarten)
is a full immersion program with all classes taught in either French
or Spanish. In grades 1-3, 80% of the day is taught in French or
Spanish and 20% in English. In grades 4 and 5, half the day is taught
in English and half in French or Spanish. In grades 6-8, 35% of
the program is taught in the target language and the rest in English.
The High School program is about 85% English, 15% French or Spanish.
Students have a chance to start a third language in grade 6. In
a student body representing 42 different countries, the first language
of about 85% of the students is English.
Currently, International School of Indiana students take courses
that lead to completion of high school at the end of grade 12. The
school's goal is to have students pass the International Baccalaureate
and to have graduates accepted by post-secondary institutions of
their choice in the US and abroad.
The International School of Indiana personnel reflects the diversity
of its student body and is recruited in the United States as well
as in French- and Spanish-speaking countries. They are accredited
in the country of origin, are committed to bilingual education and,
if possible, are bilingual themselves.
International School of Indiana admits students and administers
its programs without discrimination on the basis of sex, race, religion,
national or ethnic origin.
