Midtown Education Summit
More than 50 schools and educational organizations will gather at The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis on Thursday, September 22 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. for the 2016 Midtown Education Summit. Now in it’s fourth year, this free event serves as a venue that puts parents and community stakeholders face-to-face with school representatives to make sure that they have the information needed to select the best school for their students. The Midtown Education Summit is a resource for all grade levels - from Pre-K through high school - and focuses on matching students with the school that best fits their needs. To aid in this decision process, representatives from charter schools, parochial schools, Montessori schools, Indianapolis Public Schools and more will be in attendance to answer questions about courses of study and what their schools have to offer. To begin this year’s Summit, guest speaker, Dr. Lori Desautels, from Butler University’s College of Education, will give a presentation entitled “Educating Our Kids Using Science of the Brain.” This presentation will begin at 6 p.m. in the Sunburst Atrium of The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis and Dr. Desautels will be available for questions following the talk. Parents can benefit from the Midtown Education Summit regardless of the age of their children. “Whether you have questions about your next Midtown school, or you are realtor who wants to know more about options in Midtown, this is the event for you,” event organizer and sponsor Elizabeth Marshall said. “We really want families from all over our community, from Fall Creek--near the museum--to the Broad Ripple area to have awareness of the quality pre-K through high school educational options available to their children,” Anthony Bridgeman, Dir. Of Community Initiatives, The Children's Museum of Indianapolis, title sponsor for the event said. Free garage and surface lot parking will be offered at this event and all are welcome.
