FORT PIERCE — Indiantown High School, a new Martin County charter school focusing on career and workforce education, welcomes expressions of interest from parents of students looking to enroll in its inaugural ninth-grade class. The school, operated by Indian River State College (IRSC) in partnership with the Martin County School District, will open on August 10, 2022, with an initial cohort of 75 first-year high school students.
“Establishing a high school here will greatly improve pathways for workforce and post-high school educational opportunities for the children of Indiantown,” states Leslie Judd, Interim Executive Director/Principal of Indiantown High School. “We are delighted to take our next step and share details with incoming ninth-grade students and their families at indiantownhs.irsc.edu.”
Programs offered at Indiantown High School will meet Florida’s public high school graduation requirements and allow students to earn career and technical certifications and college-level credit through Dual Enrollment.
Initially, the school will occupy a temporary home at the Boys & Girls Club of Indiantown. IRSC will break ground on a state-of-the-art 60,000 square-foot building at Southwest Citrus Boulevard later in the year. The transformative project, accelerated by a $10 million gift from an anonymous donor, underscores the donor’s and IRSC’s mutual commitment to helping students of all ages, backgrounds and means achieve their dreams through education.
Indiantown High School will be the second high school IRSC operates in Martin County. The Clark Advanced Learning Center, a public charter high school on the College’s Chastain Campus in Stuart, opened in 2004. Clark is among the top-scoring Treasure Coast schools based on Florida’s school grading system and among the top 20 high schools in all of Florida.
