INDIAN HILL, OH (September 17, 2020) – Be Brave … within the Indian Hill School District, from our academics, to our arts, to our athletics – we strive to do just that.

This past school year was historic for K-12 education. In March 2020, we completely altered the model of how we deliver our educational services due to COVID-19. All of us – from our students, to our parents, to our faculty and staff – exemplified what it really means to Be Brave.

While a unique chapter, the completion of our 2019-2020 school year did not define us as a District; we authored our own amazing story, of which distance learning was only one part. It is a story captured in our eighth annual publication of the Quality Profile, which we just released and is available on our District website (; “About”). 

We also revolutionized how we share our story that is so uniquely Indian Hill through a special State of the Schools video series, which you can access within the “About” section of our District website. These stories give you access to testimonials from our students, our parents, and our faculty and staff, so you can fully experience what it means to Be Brave.

Ours is a story built upon developing and delivering on an intentional plan. Through the pages of our Quality Profile, our stakeholders can explore our advancements within our G.O.L.D. Strategic Plan for Transformational Excellence. While we continue to evolve as a District, some parts of the Indian Hill story won’t change – that is the excellence our stakeholders both expect and deserve.

From our No. 5 high school state ranking by U.S. News & World Report to our No. 9 national ranking by Niche as one of the best public school districts in the country – we remain the example of exceptional educational services ensuring the intellectual development, personal growth, and social responsibility of each student.

Our #IHPromise is our commitment to our stakeholders to continue to Be Brave.

In service to our children,
