My #IHPromise - to work tirelessly for our students, providing them with the most exceptional educational opportunities & experiences to help ensure that they are not only simply great academic students upon graduating but also develop into fine young men and women.  

 

Education is at the heart of the development of every child.  It is one of the many reasons why becoming an educator is a noble profession and rewarding beyond compare. Since the beginning of my career it has been an absolute pleasure and privilege to have the opportunity to make an impact on the lives of so many young people.  Whether as a teacher, coach, or administrator, I want every student to know that they are special, important, and supported by all those around them. I want all of our Braves to feel that Indian Hill High School is their home and within these walls the possibilities are endless. 

The best moment of the day is standing outside the entrance to Indian Hill High School each morning to greet our amazing kids. Rain or shine, Mr. Hayes and I will greet our students with joy each day! We want our students to be energized and excited about the day ahead. We hope to invigorate their energy and set the tone that today will be a great day at Indian Hill High School!

To be a Brave is synonymous with excellence; that is the standard. At Indian Hill High School, being a Brave inspires our students to embody our six pillars of Leadership, Integrity, Pride, Excellence, Respect, and Opportunity.  

Our close-knit learning community is a strategic advantage – we are able to offer our students a plethora of academic and extracurricular opportunities, in hopes that we spark their internal passions! Here at Indian Hill we have been given permission to dream BIG, to think about school differently, and focus our attention on the incredible aspects of school  that inspired all of us to embark on our own educational journey. Simply put, Indian Hill High School is amazing!
