Northeast Indianapolis depending on your definition of "Northeast Indianapolis" would probably be Lawrence Township. I would have to say Lawrence North High School and Amy Beverly Elementary School. Unfortunately I cant name a Lawrence township middle school right now.

Doesn't Inianapolis still have the magnet program? If so, Arsenal Tech is the high school of choice. TC Steele #98 was a good middle school. John Marshall ain't bad. My sister went to Forest Manor. She said that was a nice school.

Search for Schools

Use this for a resource.

Indy is laid out with 8 township school districts and IPS

the townships From E to W and N to S

Lawrence, Washington, Pike, Warren, IPS, Wayne, Franklin, Perry, Decatur

IPS overlaps into the surrounding townships so just because you are in Lawrence township doesn't mean you go to Lawrence schools.

I left Indy for Fishers for one reason, schools. I left Lawrence which is commonly looked upon as one of the better in Indy.

If you are an out of towner or new to the city, please consider this. The city of Indianapolis/Marion County is one political unit under Unigov, with 9 townships. 8 townships have their own school district. The old 'pre-Unigov' city of Indianapolis (Center TWP) has its own, called IPS. Avoid IPS. And the cities of Beech Grove and Speedway have their own as well. All together, there are a dozen school districts in Marion County. Lawrence TWP is on the far NE Corner of Marion County/Indianapolis, so I'm assuming you are refering to that. If so, Lawrence North HS is the public high school. There is a private school in the area called Heritage Christian, but I cant remember if it serves high school age students. The good news is that Indianapolis has a whole slew of private schools. Most are Catholic/Parochial schools and the others are Protestant (Heritage).

I also forgot. The city of Lawrence (in Lawrence TWP) also has Lawrence Central HS, that serves students in the southern half of Lawrence. The northern half of Lawrence and the rest of the TWP use Lawrence North.

Heritage does have high school students, or it used to. Lawrence North is the best high school in that area that's within Marion County.

Not necessarily true. MSDLT attempts to bring some racial/socioeconomic balance to the high schools. There are pockets in northern half of the township that attend LC. Kids on the east side of Geist, for example, go to Central. Check out the boundary map: https://www.ltschools.org/boundaries.php (broken link)

I attended Arsenal Tech High School from 84 to 88. That was the best IPS school then. I majored in Aviation Mechanics there.

That is not true. They buss the students around to equalize the racial makeup of each school. So living in the northern part of Lawrence township doesn't not mean you'll go to North HS - same with middle schools and even to a lesser degree grade schools.

edit - oops, I see I was beaten to the punch
