Charles and Sandy Johnston
Charles and Sandy Johnston

Indiantown High School was the dream of Charles and Sandy Johnston and the Johnston Family Foundation. Less than 14 months after breaking ground, students, faculty, staff, and community members convened for the grand opening of Indiantown's first and only high school. The vision of bringing a public charter high school to Indiantown, Florida, was accelerated by the unwavering commitment of Indiantown High School's Founder, Charles Johnston, a lifelong entrepreneur and philanthropist. Johnston and his wife Sandra have been deeply involved with Indiantown's Hope Rural School, a testament to their enduring commitment to providing quality education to immigrant families. Their dedication to building brighter futures for underserved children and families was the driving force behind Indiantown High School. In March 2022, the Johnston’s provided a $10 million leadership gift, and by June 2022, construction for the new facility began. Knowing Indiantown High School will have transformational effects on the children, families, and businesses in the community, the Johnston’s work closely with the Indian River State College Foundation to bring this exceptional educational facility to life and give the children of Indiantown a lifetime of opportunity.
