Welcome to the Center for Inquiry School 27, a leading International Baccalaureate School in Indianapolis, committed to nurturing globally-minded, socially responsible learners.

Under the dynamic leadership of Principal Hilary Duvall, our school at 545 East 19th Street offers an enriched curriculum that focuses on local and global issues. We invite you to explore our Primary Years Programme (PYP) for grades K-5 and the Middle Years Programme (MYP) for grades 6-8.
