Purdue Polytechnic High School continues to grow

Purdue Polytechnic High School, a STEM- focused, tuition-free charter school designed to provide education, experience, and a potential path to college for urban and minority students, reinvented high school education. In fall 2020, Purdue University announced that the high school’s flagship location in Indianapolis would be named in honor of Purdue alumnus Edmund O. Schweitzer III and Beatriz Schweitzer.

Purdue Polytechnic Indianapolis High School granted charter

The Indianapolis Charter School Board on Thursday (Dec. 3) awarded a charter to the Purdue Polytechnic Indianapolis High School. The board's decision was the final step in the school's application process.

"With the approval of the charter, we are now able to start making bigger investments in the future of the school," said Gary Bertoline, dean of Purdue Polytechnic Institute. "Our next big steps are hiring a school leader and selecting a location. Both of those goals should be accomplished in the next few months."
