From Indian Mountain School

Ask any student what IMS represents to him or her, and you will hear a reflection on community—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 so that each will develop and demonstrate the courage to climb.

    Indian Mountain School Reviews

    IMS is a wonderful school with caring faculty, an emphasis on the outdoors and set in the beautiful NW corner of Connecticut. It is one of the few junior boarding schools that exist and with that comes an incredible diversity of students and experience for all. Highly recommend this gem of a school!

    I have four very different children and each of their unique experiences has been amazing. Two are now at prep school - they entered prepared both academically and socially.
    It is a terrific place to learn and grow. The mountain is a special place - the school is able to incorporate it into the culture, learning and activities in creative, productive and fun ways.
