H. L. Harshman Middle School

We are a proud member of the Indianapolis Public Schools community of schools serving grades 6 through 8.

Harshman is a student-focused environment where community, relationships, drive, and rigor come together to foster the development of students as a whole person. Through inclusive practices, we embrace a variety of identities and cultures represented in our community, and value the diversity they add.

Harshman is a school designed to meet the unique needs of students who are academically and/or linguistically advanced. Harshman supports students in their growth as leaders in their local community as well as the global community through appropriately differentiated curriculum and biliteracy support that values their individual characteristics, needs, abilities, and interests.


Harshman Middle School is a vibrant educational institution that is part of the Indianapolis Public Schools (IPS). We are not just a traditional middle school but a hub where diversity is cherished, minds are nurtured, and students are prepared for the future. As we embrace the 2024-25 school year, we are excited to launch our high-ability and dual language immersion program. Join us as we forge ahead, embracing diversity, driving success!
