A Culture of Innovation

Classes at Innovation focus on higher-order critical thinking skills, emphasizing depth of understanding over breadth of knowledge. Systems Thinking tools are used throughout the curriculum to help students understand the complex relationships and dynamic processes that govern so many of the most fundamental problems our world is facing.

Students apply their thinking to concrete problems throughout the curriculum, working on hands-on projects and presenting their most polished work to a public audience at quality nights and jury days in the middle school and at presentations of learning and exhibition nights in the high school. 

Teachers emphasize interdisciplinary connections to help students understand how problem-solving techniques cross the boundaries of traditional disciplines and departments. An emphasis on group work and team building helps students learn that making connections between diverse experiences and perspectives is a crucial skill in all disciplines.
