At Indian Hill Elementary School, the Cincinnati Children’s Theatre performed a play about Coretta Scott King. At Indian Hill Middle School, each day started with announcements recognizing history-making African Americans, and featuring black composers, singers, and musicians during morning music. At Indian Hill Primary School, our youngest Braves explored diversity and inclusion through art. Across the Indian Hill School District, Braves celebrated African American History Month during February.

“It is special to celebrate African American History during February, and the learning should not stop there,” said Indian Hill Superintendent Kirk Koennecke. “We are so fortunate to have a core group of parents – our IH Parent Equity Group – who serve as an excellent resource within the Indian Hill School District, and we work in collaboration with them to develop a rich learning-centered culture for students and staff.”

Founded in 2016, the IH Parent Equity Group consists of parents from a multitude of racial, cultural, and religious backgrounds who support the Indian Hill School District initiative to bring racial awareness and cultural competency into the District and community.

“This is who we are as a District, and we thank all Braves – especially our students – who have helped make this celebration so unique,” said Superintendent Koennecke.
