The International School of Indiana board has named a Colorado native who most recently was leading a bilingual school in Costa Rica to be its head.
Elizabeth Head will be the first female leader in the International School’s 25-year history and brings more than 20 years of international experience and bilingual leadership to the school.
“I believe that education is the development of integral human beings as a whole—not simply focusing on the mind of a child, but also giving equal priority to their social, emotional and physical development,” Head said in a written statement.
“I intend to deploy that educational philosophy in my new role at ISI and expand on the school’s commitment to ensuring all students have a well-balanced education,” she said.
Head’s most recent role was the general director of the Pan-American School in San Antonio de Belen, Costa Rica, a private, international, bilingual school with about 600 students. She had been co-owner, co-founder and general director of the Lighthouse International School in Costa Rica.•
