About our future location:

Purdue Polytechnic High School will be in its permanent location in the historic PR Mallory Building starting with the 2020-2021 school year. Located on the east side of Indianapolis, the PR Mallory Building is undergoing $36 million in renovations with support from The Mind Trust and the City of Indianapolis. The long-vacant factory will be revitalized into a four-story, 120,000-square-foot complex and serve as the permanent home for Purdue Polytechnic High School and Paramount Schools of Excellence’s new campus, Paramount Englewood.
