Beginning school year 2017-2018, IPS will open a new medical/STEM middle school. This new dynamic middle school will serve students’ affinity for math and science; and desire to explore the medical field as a career. Students work to gather the skills to think critically, solve complex problems, and drive advancements in math, science, technology and medical curriculums.

The school will be located in the Longfellow building. Students currently enrolled in grades 6-7 at Crispus Attucks Medical Magnet school will have guaranteed seats at the new medical/STEM middle school, as Crispus Attucks phases out all middle grades.

In addition to the students who commit from Crispus Attucks, the new medical/STEM middle school will be part of the choice lottery process as an option for students in 7th and 8th grades. The choice application will be available in November.
