Student Spotlight: Joelle Johnson '25
Joelle joined the Creek in the fall of 2020 as an avid golfer and an A student and is continuing to excel at both as a Creeker. “I think my biggest personal achievement at ICS is getting all A+ on my first semester at Indian Creek”, she says before adding, “My goal is to go to college on a scholarship.” Joelle has been golfing for over 8 years and has a 2 handicap on the AJGA amateur golf circuit. In addition to her academic and athletic achievements Joelle, along with 3 other freshmen, created and runs a student run newspaper called The Creek Chronicle.
Joelle’s favorite thing about ICS is “The community. Everyone was so welcoming when I was new here. The teachers and the students were so helpful, and I have made so many amazing friends.” Her favorite subjects are English, because “I love writing the most” and Algebra 1 “because I love my teacher”.
Joelle’s fondest memory of ICS is the lip sync battle. “It was so much fun, and it really showed what the ICS community was really like.” After graduation she is looking forward to playing golf at the collegiate level “since that has been a dream of mine ever since I was little”.
Indian Creek school is a co-educational, college preparatory independent school, located in Crownsville, Maryland. Students in Pre-K3 through grade 12 receive a vibrant educational experience based on excellent academics steeped in strong student-teacher connections.
