Academic Options

IPS is a leader in providing varied educational pathways for students of different ethnicity, socio-economic backgrounds and learning styles. Our goal is to ensure that each of our 30,000 students graduate on time prepared to become successfully enrolled in college, enlisted in the military or employed at a livable wage. Our students today are being equipped to become tomorrow’s knowledgeable and thoughtfully engaged citizens and leaders in our community.

We help students achieve their educational and career goals by offering:

  • Numerous exciting choice, innovation and neighborhood schools to meet every student’s academic needs.
  • Rewarding K-8 school options as well as dedicated middle and high school programs.
  • A progressive English as a Second Language (ESL) curriculum in all IPS schools, and our Newcomer Program dedicated to educating students who are new to our country and assisting their families with access to important services and supports.

As we say, At IPS … It’s All Here!
