Not just a school. A community.
Indianapolis Russian School
Our mission is to encourage and promote an interest in Russian language and culture, to help children develop life-long friendships, and to build a global community regardless of people place of origin.
About Indianapolis Russian School
Indianapolis Russian School was founded in 1993 by a group of Russian-speaking immigrants - mostly parents themselves. They had a common concern, probably shared by any immigrant's family: how to keep the native culture and pass it on to the children? It all started with a few volunteers, mostly ex-teachers, who would come to Jewish Community Center, on Sundays, to teach just a handful of children what they knew the best and love the most: Russian Language, Literature, Math, Music, Art...
Time has passed, the number of students has grown considerably over the years. In the fall of 2009 the school has found a new home in University High School located in Carmel, Indiana. We are confident that this move will help us to further grow and will add more flexibility and convenience for the students and parents.
Classes are held on Sundays and are split in fall and spring semesters. At the end of fall semester the school traditionally holds a New Year Celebration for the whole Russian community of Greater Indianapolis. The spring semester ends with the End Of Year Recital where students have a chance to show on stage what they have learned throughout the year. Most classes are geared toward the children from the families where Russian is spoken at home, but we also have a group for students who are learning the Russian language as foreign.
We are committed to continue with our efforts to create a fun learning environment where children with any level of Russian language skills would feel welcome and comfortable.
