On May 16, 70 community volunteers from CRF, ProAct, PAXWorks and Art with a Heart rolled up their sleeves to work with teachers and students to beautify the school grounds at Meredith Nicholson School 96.
There are currently 32 Learning Gardens in Indianapolis, with 18 in Indianapolis Public Schools. The first two IPS Learning Gardens were installed in November 2016 at William McKinley School 39 and Global Preparatory Academy at Riverside 44.
Young people looking to travel around the city on Indygo can do so for an affordable rate thanks to the Summer Youth Pass. For $30.00, youth, ages 18 and younger, can ride IndyGo all summer, June 1 through August 31.

IPS Diversity Statement
Indianapolis Public Schools is an equal employment opportunity school corporation which strives to deliver educational excellence, equitable access, and quality service to our students and families. IPS recognizes the educational and social value of human differences and their various forms. IPS is committed to an inclusive approach which affirms and embraces all aspects of diversity. We are strengthened by our unique knowledge, experiences, interests, hopes, challenges, cultures, traditions and families. We engage families as partners in education through trusting relationships built on culturally responsive two-way communication and mutual respect.
Recognizing our diversity, we are committed to equity in all of our work. We seek to allocate resources to eliminate discrimination and disparities. We strive to eliminate prejudice, bigotry, and intolerance and bridge gaps between and among our diverse students, families, staff and communities.
Our approach to diversity and commitment to fairness ensure that the students we serve are empowered to succeed in college, career, military and life.
