We're Student Focused:
Not every student has the same learning style or interests. We get that. That’s why we have designed an academically rigorous yet flexible curriculum and school environment to meet each student’s individual learning needs with a focus on the subjects and ideas that motivate them.
We encourage students to take learning into their own hands with the guidance of teachers and mentors who are tuned into their specific needs. Students pace themselves, seek guidance when they need it, join other students in collaborative work teams, and engage in subjects that pique their imagination and inspire them to learn even more.
We're STEM Focused:
We don’t have desks lined up in rows or bells that ring every 45 to 50 minutes. Purdue Polytechnic High School is more like a work environment where students collaborate toward mutual goals, are rewarded for creatively solving problems, and learn that being self-motivated leads to the best results.
Students learn all of the core subjects mandated by the State of Indiana through the lens of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). In the context of solving real-world challenges – such as determining the most effective way to move people farther and faster – students use teamwork and critical-thinking skills. They also study and apply key math, history, literature and science concepts in the process of completing their projects.
