We currently offer 5 special programs ranging from Developmental Preschool to life skills classes. Mental health services are offered through Midtown Mental Health. We also have strong partnerships with Eli Lilly, Mary Rigg, and Indy Parks. Over half of our student population also speak Spanish as a primary or secondary language. We are truly considered a community school.
