About this collection

Shortridge High School was founded in 1864 as Indianapolis High School and was the state's first free high school. The school's name was changed to Shortridge in 1898 after Abram C. Shortridge, an Indianapolis school superintendent. As the school population grew, faculty and students moved to a new building at 3401 N. Meridian Street in 1928. The school was briefly closed in the 1980s and reopened as a middle school, then became a magnet high school which now specializes in International Baccalaureate and Arts & Humanities. The Shortridge High School Digital Collection contains photographs and other materials that highlight the school's history, students, faculty and activities. The collection also contains photographs from some other Indianapolis Public Schools, including the James E. Roberts School.
