Who We Serve
Indianapolis Public Schools is proud to serve 30,000 students in the city of Indianapolis. We serve a diverse student population, offering a uniquely rewarding teaching experience. There are many opportunities to teach in IPS beginning immediately.
The classroom teacher is still the single most significant contributor to student achievement - the effect is greater than that of parents, peers, school or poverty. One IPS student recently went from homeless to valedictorian of Broad Ripple High School! Another IPS student overcame not knowing a word of English at age 12 to recently becoming George Washington Community High School’s valedictorian!
The possibilities for our students are endless when they are impacted and inspired by teachers who unlock their potential. Our students need teachers who will build academic optimism and motivate them to believe that they can and will succeed!
They need great teachers. They need YOU. Apply today to join teamIPS!
