Indian Creek School is an independent, coeducational, PreK3-Grade 12 college preparatory day school dedicated to providing students with an excellent education with a learner-centered approach. At Indian Creek, teachers know, approach, and support their students as individuals. Our approximately 500 students benefit from learning in a diverse community that is nurturing, engaging, and challenging. Indian Creek students develop self-worth, the confidence to take intellectual risks, and the ability to work collaboratively. ICS students are prepared to live in a dynamic and global community where achievement comes not only from knowing but knowing how to know. The Indian Creek community is actively committed to valuing, celebrating, and respecting diversity in race, culture, religion, gender, sexual orientation, socio-economic means, abilities, affinities, and learning strengths. Diversity, equity, and justice are core values of our community and we foster an inclusive environment in which every member of the school feels understood, valued, respected, and affirmed.
ICS seeks faculty and staff who support our mission and values, who are committed to supporting and nurturing learners as individuals, and who are looking to join a vibrant community of professionals who are passionate about education. Faculty and staff are offered meaningful opportunities for professional growth. Because we are a small school, every member of our community plays a critical role in making sure the institution lives up to its mission.
