Students who attend the downtown campus of Indianapolis-based Purdue Polytechnic High School will be moving to a new, permanent location.
Officials will Monday take part in a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the newly-renovated campus located at the PR Mallory Building on East Washington Street in Indianapolis.
Purdue University President Mitch Daniels, Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett and Scott Bess, Purdue Polytechnic High School’s head of schools are scheduled to celebrate the opening.
PPHS says the building is more than 120 years old and has been vacant for the past 30 years.
The Purdue Polytechnic HS program focuses on providing minority students a STEM-focused education.
In addition to the new Mallory building campus, PPHS also has a program in the Broad Ripple neighborhood. This fall, a PPHS campus in South Bend is scheduled to open.
