In fall 2021, all Indian Creek School students, from Pre-K3 through grade 12 will unite on one campus, representing a moment of arrival towards the culmination of the School’s first 50 years, and a launching point for the School’s next 50 years.
ICS is currently divided between two campuses: Pre-K3-Grade 6 on a Lower School campus and Grades 7-12 on an Upper School campus. The upcoming campus unification has presented an opportunity to critically consider the appropriate divisions and programs that best support the developmental characteristics of students at different ages.
At Indian Creek, we are approaching this journey with a motto of “learning together,
” and a commitment not to “go back” to how things were, but instead to “grow forward” to all school can be. As we embark on our planning for next school year, we need to consider what we don’t yet know about the future of COVID-19 to ensure our program is agile and optimized for hybrid-flexible learning; we also need to consider what we do know, which is that in 2021-22 the ICS community will be united onto one state-of-the-art campus. We are optimistic for bright days ahead, and, more importantly, we are ready.
As we plan for next school year, we anticipate some significant changes: the addition of a distinct Middle School
for example, as well as the hope for a program less restricted by COVID-19 protocols. But, a lot of what you will read here is a continuation of what has always been at the heart of Indian Creek: a school in which every student has the signature ICS experience of learning that is personal, stimulating, and relevant, and an education that is grounded in supportive relationships and an inclusive community.
