Broad Ripple High School has been led by a number of talented and dedicated Principals, each building on the excellent work of his or her predecessors. They have guided the school thriough good times and bad times . .  including the time in 1896 at which the school burned to the ground and the students were required to meet at the Broad Ripple Methodist Church at the corner of 62nd Street and Guilford Avenue.

Thanks to the historical records of the Broad Ripple Gazette and those of the School, we were able to develop the following roster of Lead Teachers / Principals and to attach some photographs of these persons who were so important to the development of Broad Ripple High School.   If you have additional information about these persons, please share it with us.
