Northwest Middle School

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

Welcome to Northwest Middle School, an innovative hub of learning located on the West Side of Indianapolis. We pride ourselves on preparing our students to be life-long learners who will grow into knowledgeable, productive, well-rounded citizens in an increasingly global society.

Guided by our mission to create a safe school-wide culture of real-world learning experiences that empower the social, emotional, and academic growth of our students, we aim to equip them with the necessary skills needed to prepare for high school and beyond. We provide engaging, student-centered learning activities that are relevant to the requirements of the community and society they will contribute to in the future.

Starting from the 2024 School Year, we are excited to announce that Northwest Middle School will become an IB World Middle School, expanding our reach to serve grades 6-8. We will also undergo extensive facility updates to enhance our learning environment and student services, ensuring our school remains a vibrant and engaging learning hub. We look forward to welcoming you into our diverse and inclusive community!
