Indiana Math and Science Academy West provides its students with an innovative world class education, rich in math, science and technology focused on preparing students to become bold inquirers, problem solvers and ethical leaders, skill-ready for post-secondary education to meet the challenges of a competitive global workforce.
Walk through the doors of our school and you would feel a palpable sense of something unique and strong. Students’ faces of all nationalities, race, economic backgrounds and scholastic levels exude unspoken confidence. Hallways buzz with excitement and the moment you are introduced to the students and faculty, it becomes clear that this is a school that changes lives.
We have a culture built on a common set of values, student, teacher, and parent accountability, and high expectations which result in high levels of student achievement. Our administrators, teachers and families have high expectations of our students and students have high expectations of their teachers.
Indiana Math and Science Academy West is operated by Concept Schools. Concept Schools is a not-for-profit charter management organization that manages high quality charters in the Midwest. All Concept managed schools implement the school design created by Concept in 1999. All Concept managed schools are very successful and they build strong reputation for being effective learning environments in a very short time.

IMSA WEST promotes 6 Core Values to guide its interactions with all members of the school community
Respect – All members of the school community (students, parents, and staff) have equal worth and should be treated with respect.
Responsibility – All people have choices, and teachers, parents, and students should be responsible for their actions.
Integrity – Belonging to a community requires a commitment to the common good. The community is stronger when everyone can be counted upon to be honest and trustworthy.
Courage – Having the courage to try new things expands minds and causes students, parents, and staff to reach beyond their own expectations.
Curiosity – The ability to wonder and to create connections stimulates further learning. Inquiry will be fostered on the part of parents, staff, and students.
Effort – Success is accomplished when students, family, and staff are willing to do what it takes to accomplish their vision of the future.
