About Our School

Global Prep at Riverside 44 is proud to be an A-rated school serving the students of Riverside and Indianapolis. Our unique two-strand model allows students the option of receiving a rigorous academic experience in a fully bilingual environment or through a challenging English option that focuses on project-based / experiential learning. Both approaches have shown significant benefits in helping students to accelerate their mastery of academic materials. All students will benefit from Global Prep’s focus on multiculturalism and diversity where students are exposed to cultures outside of their own and they will learn in an environment where education is tailored and individualized for each student’s own needs and learning styles.
