One of the reasons Indian Hill staff is able to provide such an outstanding education to our students is because of the outstanding environment in which we work.

This environment has been recognized for three years in a row by the Cincinnati Enquirer’s “Top Workplaces” program. This year, the Cincinnati Business Courier also recognized the District as being one of their “Best Places to Work.”Dr. Mark Miles accepting Indian Hill's Best Places to Work award

On Wednesday, November 8, the Indian Hill School District was honored as one of 75 finalists out of 165 companies that competed this year. Companies needed an overall score of 85+ to be considered. Indian Hill’s was 90.86; in the Grand Company category (based on company size), the average score was 88, and the top 3 Grand companies’ average was 90, putting us at the top of the heap!

Because of our high score, we were also recognized with one of three awards given in each category (awards are for top first-time company; top previous winner; and top veteran company). As a first-time competitor, we were awarded the top first-time company recognition!

“Overall, this is a great place to be. The students are why we are here and they are wonderful. As long as we stay student focused I think great things will continue to happen.”

“I came here from another district and have been overwhelmed at how respectfully I have been treated by everyone I have encountered. Everyone seems to care about my ideas as a professional … The trust, autonomy and professionalism have been a breath of fresh air for me, and I am so thankful to be here!” 

“I love working at Indian Hill. This is the fourth school district I have worked in over my career, and it is by far the best place I’ve worked by a large margin. It is a wonderful environment for professional development, it provides amazing educational opportunities for its students, and it is a place that, first and foremost, cares about people.” 

Thank you to all involved in making Indian Hill Schools a great place to be for students, families, and staff members!
