Our Culture, Diversity & Equity
EMPOWERING STUDENTS ACROSS INDIANA TO CREATE THE WORLD THEY ENVISION.
We provide real-world experiences that are free of classroom boundaries. Our students are exposed to a variety of industries and experiences that give them the opportunity to explore their interests and discover their passions. They engage in work-based learning opportunities and hands-on projects that solve real-world problems in their communities.
QUESTION EVERYTHING AND DREAM BIG!
We are innovative.
We are hands-on.
We are free.
We are Purdue Polytechnic High School and we are reinventing high school by breaking down the structure that students have had for years.
We are innovative in our approach to education, focused solely on what’s best for students and never assuming that the learning process should be what it always has been.
We are transforming school from preparing students for the industrial age to preparing students for the information age.
