At Indian Mountain School, energetic and innovative faculty
foster each child’s natural inquisitiveness and encourage the kind of risk-taking that enables young people to become critical thinkers, confident students, and responsible citizens. Through a rigorous, well-developed academic program, students build knowledge in each discipline and gain the organizational and study skills that provide the best possible foundation for the demands of secondary school and college.
With the extensive interaction and individualized instruction that are the hallmarks of an IMS education, students with exceptional talent are always challenged, and those with challenges are always supported.
Classes are small, generally 10 to 12 students, with a 4:1 teacher to student ratio. Writing, public speaking, research, and critical analysis skills are integral components of the English, history, foreign language, and science programs at all grade levels. Mathematics is highly tailored, with the option to advance through Algebra II. Personal attention, close supervision, and frequent communication with students and parents are key as students learn to be active and responsible participants in their own education.
