Traditional Public Schools

Each Hoosier student is assigned to a traditional public school based on their home address. But what if that school is a poor fit? Indiana allows students to transfer to another traditional public school, at no cost. More than 55,000 students are currently using this option to attend a traditional public school chosen by their parents.

The Indiana Department of Education provides a list each year of Indiana traditional public schools that accept transfer students. Download the list >>
