New Indiantown high school provides
multiple paths to success
As you drive west along Southwest Citrus Boulevard
approaching Timer Powers Park in Indiantown, a
massive structure rises in the middle of vast agricultural
fields. The building — Indiantown Charter
High School — will be the new home of the town’s first high
school. It is a symbol of hope, promising educational opportunities
and a brighter economic future for local residents.
It is the second public charter high school that Indian River
State College operates in collaboration with the Martin County
School District. The school began in August with students
meeting at the Boys and Girls Club of Indiantown.
The new state-of-the-art building is scheduled to be
completed in July. It offers students the flexibility of choosing
from a traditional high school curriculum with a focus
on career and vocational education or college-level learning.
The new programs give students a head start on their careers
even before they graduate.
“One of the primary goals of our high school is to offer and
prepare our students to be college and career-ready and empower
them with skills that they need to join the community
workforce,” principal Lisa Davenport explains.
“We also balance that with college readiness because we
very much want students to have additional opportunities
