About EVSC New Tech High School

New Tech's History

New Tech Institute High School began as an innovative model in the EVSC in August 2010. We focus on Project-Based Learning as well as STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math). We are a small, close-knit high school where students learn by doing. 

We are part of the New Tech Network, which began in 1996 in Napa, California and now includes more than 180 New Tech schools across the United States and Australia.

We are known as the Thunderbolts, named after the P-47 Thunderbolt airplanes used in World War II, built just about a mile north of the school during the 1940s.

The first class of New Tech Institute HS students graduated in May 2014.

New Tech was named an Indiana Department of Education STEM-Certified school in 2016 and again in 2021. We were named a New Tech Network Demonstration Site and Exemplary School for three consecutive years, a Battelle for Kinds Partnership for 21st Century Learning School in 2019, and a New Tech Network Spotlight School in 2021. 

New Tech's Mission

New Tech Institute High School is a community where all students are connected and empowered to reach their full potential through engaging and relevant project-based learning and STEM experiences in an atmosphere of collaboration, critical problem-solving, trust, respect, and responsibility.
