It is one of five traditional high schools in the Indianapolis Public Schools district.HistoryEstablishment and HistoryTo provide training in such fields as mechanics, drafting, and the domestic arts, a resolution was adopted which petitioned the Indiana General Assembly to permit the school board to levy a tax for the construction of a new industrial school in Indianapolis. On June 14, 1888, the board went on record as favoring the proposed step in manual training education and voted to establish two such classes in the Indianapolis High School. Forty students enrolled in these first classes, and enthusiasm for the undertaking grew. A bill to enable the Board of School Commissioners to levy a tax for the construction of an industrial school in Indianapolis (House Bill 811) was introduced in the Indiana House of Representatives on February 19, 1891. With the support of the Marion County legislators the bill passed the House easily: however, it did not reach the Senate floor until the closing days of the General Assembly, On the next to last day of the legislature, Senator Thompson of Marion County was persuaded to sponsor the bill. Because his name would not be reached in sufficient time to present the bill, Senator Fuik of Monroe and Brown counties at the last minute presented the bill to the Senate. This bill, permitting the collection of five cents on every hundred dollars of taxable property in Indianapolis for the establishment of an industrial training school, was passed with one dissenting vote, on March 7, 1891.
