Finding the right school for your child often takes time, effort, lots of research, and maybe even a little help. That’s why Indianapolis Public Schools is excited to present its 5th Annual Showcase of Schools this Saturday. This education and enrollment fair offers access to all 70-plus schools and programs under one roof on Saturday, November 10 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Indiana State Museum, 650 W. Washington St. The event will take over all three floors inside the museum.
In addition to being able to talk to school representatives about academic programming, extracurricular activities and school resources, families will also have an opportunity to engage with community organizations such as the Center for Leadership Development, Girls Inc., Young Actors Theatre, 21st Century Scholars and more. Families can enroll on-site in the districtwide Choice Application Lottery for IPS' coveted Choice programs for the 2019-20 school year.
Guests will receive free admission, including access to the museum’s exhibits, as well as free parking (with a completed Showcase passport). On top of that, children 18 and younger can get free food from the Bus Stop Café, the district's food bus. Student groups will also provide entertainment throughout the day.
“Showcase is a family’s best opportunity to experience all of what IPS has to offer in one location and at one time,” said Patrick Herrel, director of IPS Enrollment and Options. “Rather than traveling from school to school over multiple days to explore IPS' many programs and offerings, families can meet with leaders, learn about programs, and get on-site support for their students’ unique needs.”
