We are a proud member of the Indianapolis Public Schools community of schools, an IPS Innovation STEM school network, focusing on K-8 environmental science and STEM education.

Welcome to Cold Spring School, where our mission goes beyond mere academics. We aim to foster the growth of global citizens who recognize and understand the impact of human activities on the environment. Located on a beautiful 39-acre campus filled with woods, streams, trails, and wildlife, our students are immersed in nature and encouraged to explore and appreciate the world around them.

Our educational approach extends to a rich and diverse curriculum that includes social-emotional learning, gifted and talented/high ability courses, robotics, Project Lead The Way, environmental studies, web design/coding, and more. Special education services are tailored to meet individual needs, ensuring an inclusive and supportive environment.

As a community, we celebrate learning through various extracurricular activities, community partnerships, and family involvement initiatives. We welcome you to visit our school and witness firsthand the incredible journey of environmental stewardship that begins here at Cold Spring School.
