About our location:

Purdue Polytechnic High School North has recently entered into Innovation Agreement with Indianapolis Public Schools and will use space in Broad Ripple High school for the 22-23 school year. PPHS North students and staff will have access to classroom space, bathrooms and limited use of the gymnasium as needed. In addition to the space at Broad Ripple High School, PPHS North will continue to use its current space at 1405 Broad Ripple Avenue as both administrative and instructional space. 

The permanent location of PPHS North will be a new mixed-use building development in the former Chase Bank lot of 6320 College Ave. The building, proposed and built by Keystone Construction, will have dedicated space for Purdue Polytechnic High School’s Indianapolis North campus, 69 apartments and additional parking. The school will feature open, collaborative space, a dedicated makerspace and other custom, hands-on workspaces. 

“We have worked diligently with the residents and community leaders in Broad Ripple to ensure students and families on the north side of Indianapolis have an accessible, high-quality educational option. We’re thrilled that we have found a centrally located building and can deliver our unique curriculum to more Marion County students,” said Purdue Polytechnic High Schools Head of Schools Scott Bess.
