Our Lab Schools

Transforming Local P-12 Learning

Butler is investing in our neighborhood’s public education, providing innovative project-based learning for local P-12 students. The IPS/Butler University Laboratory Schools (60 and 55) operate as partnerships between Butler and the Indianapolis Public Schools district. Our College of Education faculty teach methods courses in all settings. Other Butler colleges lead school projects in science, ecology, theatre, creative writing, multicultural awareness and other subjects.

Butler’s collaboration with a public school district is designed to improve local high school completion rates, and serve as a national model for advancing successful learning and engaged citizens.  Additional partners representing foundations, corporations, individuals and the community also support these schools and their students.
