Key Learning Community, an innovative Indianapolis school, serves students from kindergarten to twelfth grade, with a mission of diversity and communication. As Indianapolis kids grow in the Key Learning Community, their individual strengths and talents are tracked by a team of professionals, giving them the greatest chance for success. The staff at Key Learning Community focus studies the following areas: Linguistics, Musical, Logical-Mathematical, Spatial, Bodily-Kinesthetic, Naturalistic, Interpersonal and Intrapersonal.
At Key Learning Community, parents and teachers collaborate with students to explore throughout the course of one’s education. The goal of Key Learning Community is to enrich the lives and learning experience of all participants, particularly students. Students expand their Indianapolis education by truly becoming part of a community through service, mentors and internships.
The Key Learning Community started in 1987 with only kindergarten through sixth grade. At that time only 150 students made up what was known as Indianapolis Public School #97. In 1992, Key Learning Community was designated as an Indiana 2000 School, a milestone in the school’s history that helped to shape the vision and mission under which it currently operates. In 1993, Key Renaissance Middle School opened its doors to seventh and eighth graders in a separate part of Indianapolis downtown. A mere four years later, the two Indianapolis schools merged into IPS #2.
The following year, Key Learning Community finally began to take shape, as school board members approved the Superintendents recommendation to add classes for Indianapolis kids in the ninth through twelfth grade. Slowly but surly, with one level added each year, Key Learning Community became K through 12. Finally in August 2000, the Indianapolis school moved to its current location on the White River Parkway. Three years later Key Learning Community graduated its first class.
With the ability to track kids from kindergarten to their senior year, IPS Key Learning Community can offer a personal touch rarely found in public schools. With a strong support system both from the staff of the school and the Indianapolis community surrounding it, students become community learners. Students find themselves actively involved in the Circle City’s community from a young age, learning valuable lessons with hands-on experience.
