On the corner of 16th and Columbia stands John Hope Elementary, IPS School 26. Built in 1920 primarily for the African-American community, this school has a rich history in the Martindale-Brightwood neighborhood.
Building on this strong legacy, The Oaks Academy began leasing School 26 from IPS in 2015 when our dedicated Middle School was launched. We now have a rare opportunity to purchase this facility to create the permanent home for our Middle School. Now, with your help we can secure the future of The Oaks and build on the legacy of those who have gone before us.
This is the perfect home for our Middle School located between our Brookside and Fall Creek campuses, School 26 has access to local parks and athletic facilities needed to facilitate our future growth.
