Support Indianapolis’ Best Public High School
Herron High School, a member of Indianapolis Classical Schools, does not receive public funds to cover the full cost of operation because of how Indiana chooses to fund schools. As a result, we rely on contributions from individuals and community groups to create a community of scholars and sustain our academic excellence.
Support from individuals like you has led to incredible results. Just look at what we’ve accomplished in the past year:
- Received an “A” rating and designation as a Four Star School by the Indiana Department of Education
- Ranked as a top 5 public high school in Indiana and among the top 1% of public high schools nationwide by U.S. News & World Report
- Listed as one of “America’s Most Challenging High Schools” by the Washington Post
Your tax-deductible gift will impact our scholars and empower Herron High School and Riverside High School to continue to provide our students with a rich and rigorous education that ignites their imaginations and sets them on a course for lifelong success and achievement.

We never lose sight of the notion that we had the privilege of starting and building a school. We have an obligation to our students, their families and to our city to get it right.
Herron High School's dedication to rigorous academics and study of the classics has earned it due recognition as a leader not only in Indiana but our nation.
