Indian Springs School

190 Woodward Dr, Indian Springs, AL 35124

Established through the bequest of Birmingham industrialist Harvey G. Woodward, ISS was conceived as a boys' school. Dr. Louis E. Armstrong, former chairman of the curriculum department of George Peabody College, served as the first director. Today, the school is coeducational, with a socially and culturally diverse student body. Serving highly motivated boys and girls from roughly a dozen states and a similar number of foreign countries, the school offers a rigorous curriculum that prepares its graduates for leading colleges. A favorable student-teacher ratio facilitates learning. Pupils and faculty work together in a model of shared governance that features a constitution, elected student officers and town meetings. Artistic and athletic opportunities, including a choir that travels both nationally and internationally, complement academics. ISS' 350-acre campus abuts Oak Mountain State Park, the largest such institution in Alabama.
