Enduring Excellence in Learning, Leadership, Innovation, and Service

Portrait of a Brave

Kirk Koennecke

From our academics, to our arts, to our athletics – the Indian Hill School District strives to understand each child’s individual passion and pair that with purpose and opportunity both inside and outside of our classrooms. Each student’s dream is what our #IHPromise works to make come true.

Excellence in academics: a history-making ACT composite score six points above the national average; 21 students recognized by the National Merit program; a World Champion Mock Trial Team; nearly 20,000 hours donated by Braves for service learning opportunities. 

Excellence in the arts: student involvement in 80-plus clubs and activities with 94 percent student participation at Indian Hill High School; a Best Community for Music Education as awarded by the National Association of Music Merchants – including a record number of nine vocalists selected for All-State Choir – more than any other high school in the state of Ohio; Braves earned 46 Scholastic Art Awards, and two National Scholastic Medals. 

Excellence in athletics: back-to-back State Champions in soccer; State Champions in track; student-athletes with individual trophy cases packed with state accolades; 24 student-athletes participating in college signings with supporters cheering them on. 

This – all of this – is a reflection of what it meant to be Brave during the 2018-2019 school year. 

From our No. 3 state ranking by U.S. News & World Report to our No. 9 national ranking by Niche as one of the best public school district’s in the country – we are the example of exceptional educational services ensuring the intellectual development, personal growth, and social responsibility of each student. In this – our seventh annual publication of the Quality Profile – we are striving to capture and share with you A Portrait of a Brave

During the 2018-2019 school year, our team made the #IHPromise come to life for the more than 2,000 scholars we have the privilege of serving, and made tremendous advancements within our G.O.L.D. Strategic Plan for Transformational Excellence, explored within the pages of our Quality Profile publication, which will be mailed to all households within the Indian Hill School District.  

My #IHPromise to you is to continue to help unleash future genius through pairing student passion with purpose and opportunity for the year ahead.

In service to our children,
