Meredith Nicholson School 96

We are a proud member of the Indianapolis Public Schools community of schools serving grades Pre-K through 5.

Watch us grow. Go Gophers!

Welcome to Meredith Nicholson School 96, where diversity thrives, and children grow. Located at 3651 North Kiel Avenue, Indianapolis, we are home to students from over 18 different countries, with approximately 85% utilizing English as a Second Language (ESL) services, making us the largest ESL site in the district.

Our caring and dedicated staff, many fluent in both Spanish and English, ensure that our educational environment is inclusive and supportive. Our data-driven instructional practices, blended with arts integration, and special education services enable us to foster academic and social growth, helping children achieve their full potential.

We invite you to explore our running club, bike club, robotics club, and more! Our active family involvement through fun events and our connections with various community partners make Meredith Nicholson School 96 a place where children not only learn but thrive.

We proudly present our new scoreboard. Thank you DSG and Meredith Nicholson parents for your generous donation. Go Gophers! See MoreSee Less
