Watch: Inside Indianapolis’s Purdue Polytechnic High, an Innovative School Built Around Design Thinking That Offers a Direct Pathway to College

December 17, 2018

Purdue Polytechnic High School in Indianapolis is reinventing high school. Temporarily located on the fourth floor above a mall’s food court, the two-year-old school of 260 freshmen and sophomores is focused on helping teens along life and career pathways that speak to their passion and sense of purpose. As we learned on a recent visit, Purdue Polytechnic teaches students design thinking to approach multiple industry-aligned challenges, allowing them to use what they learn in real-world applications, and creates a direct pathway for students to Purdue Polytechnic upon graduation. — Directed by James Fields
