We are a proud member of the Indianapolis Public Schools community of schools serving high-ability students in grades 2 through 8.

Welcome to Sidener Academy for High Ability Students, where we recognize the unique abilities and aspirations of our scholars and provide them with a nurturing environment that allows them to thrive.
