- Indian Mountain School is a community where all members lead and contribute; where friends and rivals treat each other with respect; where students take risks, fall down, and get back up again, often with the helping hand of a classmate or teacher; where relationships with teachers are strong, specific, supportive, and challenging; where each child is known and believed in deeply by a tapestry of teachers, coaches, and advisors that supports them.
- At IMS, we challenge our students to think beyond themselves, encouraging them to look to those around them and their shared future. Each student at IMS is a future contributor, problem solver, and member of the global community. We seek to develop in them the empathy, compassion, and awareness necessary to realize that potential.
