  • The Indianapolis Star Names Sycamore School a Winner of the Indianapolis Top Workplaces 2019 Award

    Sycamore School has been named a 2019 Top Workplace in Indianapolis by The Indianapolis Star. The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party research partner. The anonymous survey measures several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution, and connection. “I’m very proud,” says Sycamore’s Diane Borgmann, who has served as Head of School since 2009. “The unanimous focus on our mission and its delivery unites our faculty and staff in every way, and we are passionate about what we do. Through this award, we’ll be able to share with others why we love our school and why Sycamore is a great place for both kids and teachers!”

WE ARE SYCAMORE.

There will always be students who need schools like Sycamore, to stimulate, educate, and motivate our best and brightest.  We are educating kids, teaching them to think, both critically and creatively, and teaching them to love learning.

Today's students will be the leaders that will solve the problems of today and tomorrow. Sycamore is a prime example of institutional evolution and a story of response to a need. Our work will never be complete.
