Arsenal Tech Welcomes New Leadership

INDIANAPOLIS — New leadership will be coming to Arsenal Technical High School in the upcoming year. Julie Bakehorn, currently serving as principal for Brookside School 54 will bring her leadership skills and experience to Arsenal Tech in the fall. She will transition to her new position on July 1.
An accomplished educator, Bakehorn has over 20 years experience working in the district, starting as a teacher at Stephen Foster School 67 and working her way up to assistant principal at George Washington Community High School and principal at George H. Fisher School 93 and now Brookside.
Brookside has thrived under her leadership, earning an “A” rating in the state accountability model this year. Bakehorn currently serves as a lead principal — a model implemented in IPS this year to provide administrators with more leadership opportunities, offer peer mentoring to their colleagues and help arrange meaningful and timely professional learning.
“I look forward to moving into this administrative position at Arsenal Tech,” Bakehorn said. “This school, so rich in history, provides many great opportunities for students. With a strong leadership team and engaged faculty we will continue to build, evolve and expand on that solid foundation. I’m eager to begin.”
Current Arsenal Tech administrator David Brunsting will join Bakehorn as an assistant principal.
