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

Welcome to Jonathan Jennings School 109, where we strive to exceed expectations in all we do. Under the leadership of Principal Kevin McMahan, our commitment to nurturing young minds and inspiring independent thinkers has become our hallmark. Situated on 10-acres filled with outdoor learning spaces, we are located in the heart of Indianapolis’s Gateway Neighborhood.

We believe in the power of a well-rounded education, integrating rigorous reading and mathematics instruction with extracurricular opportunities in sports, arts, and clubs. Our dedicated team of educators and staff members work hand in hand with our community partners, all striving to create a safe environment where students grow into responsible citizens.

With a blend of educational programs like STEM education, project-based learning, and special education services, we cater to diverse learning needs. Our community partnerships with businesses, and the support of our active Parent/Teacher Organization, are key in achieving our vision. Together, we follow the idea that ‘it takes a village’ to educate a child, and at Jonathan Jennings School 109, children always come first.


Join us at Jonathan Jennings School 109, where our motto “Children Come First” guides everything we do. With a strong emphasis on respect, responsibility, and community involvement, we are dedicated to nurturing healthy bodies and minds, and providing a comprehensive educational experience. Our mission extends beyond academics; it’s about building character and creating lifelong learners. Come and be a part of our vibrant community where we believe in the power of collective efforts and celebrate our achievements. Together, we grow, inspire, and lead the way to success!
