IPS school #78 Indianapolis

I went to this school back in the mid 90s. They story behind this school is that it was built on an old graveyard. In the second floor girl's bathroom there was a locked cage used for storage. If you went in that bathroom during certain times of day you could hear what sounded like a man or woman groaning. The cage would start rattling. If you were in there after school which a lot of times I was because I was in math club you would see a man or woman in the cage. It was locked so no students could access it.

Wondeful grade school years at 78 NEW
by: Janet Johnson

I attended School here as well from k-8th grade. 1965-1974. It was and still is a very special school in my heart. We lived on Robson St right across the st from the playground and we spend many wonderful hours in that playground after school all of us neighborhood kids! Loved the teachers and the old building as well!! I moved to Ky and attended high school and left the wonderful childhood there!

School #78 NEW
by: Anonymous

Thank you Anonymous!! I attended the school from 1960-1969. It was a wonderful school! Remember Mrs Woodworth, the principal? And I believe the kg teacher's name was Mrs Cottom. The neighborhood was nice then too. My brother attended from 1956-1964. Good luck and I would certainly love to read your book!

New Book on IPS 78 NEW
by: Anonymous

I would love to read your book, I also attended school 78 before and after the new addition and the changing of the "feeder" school from Howe to Tech High School. The neighborhood was perfect, I lived on Pleasant Run Parkway and walked about a mile to and from school with no worries, no concerns of the area. It was home! A great school with wonderful teachers. Good luck with the book!

My recollections NEW
by: Anonymous

I went to IPS School # 78 from kindergarten through eight grade before the neighborhood deteriorated. Because I have have many derogatory remarks about the school from those who attended later, I am writing a book about how the neighborhood was then and t will be located in the downtown library in Indianapolis.
That neighborhood was actually one of the more respectable ones that time. we all knew each other and we had autumn fairs, carnivals etc. The school was an integral part of the neighborhood and I remember it before the later addition was added, the part farthest away from Sherman Drive. There was no haunting. And as for a graveyard ID never heard of that either. Rather the school was the place the community met and had fun!!
