Our Mission

Our vision is to create a learning environment that addresses the needs of our students through creative and engaging instruction with career readiness tracks designed for their future success. We actively seek to provide opportunities for our students to apply what they learn in the classroom thus giving our students, and their families, access to transformative experiences that will prepare them for life after graduation.

Who We Are

Innovation nurtures and develops students to be academically successful, emotionally healthy and equipped to lead self-directed and fulfilling lives.  We are a community school that earnestly seeks to provide services for students and their families based on their needs.  We welcome all students and empower them to adapt, excel, innovate and lead. By instilling the core values of innovation, collaboration, tolerance, respect, activism, safety and accountability, students will graduate prepared for success in college and careers.

With the needs of our community in mind, we have developed a high performing instructional model to ensure that our student-innovators achieve academic excellence. We do this by supporting our students with setting self-created goals within a three-tiered educational model of core classroom instruction, portfolio-based annual individual projects, and hands-on, experiential learning.

Teacher Empowerment and Collaboration

Integrated Team Teaching Model​

We use our Team Teaching model to ensure that our teachers feel supported and work closely to maintain a strong school culture, academic expectations, and a positive learning environment to meet the unique needs of our students

Everyone Learns Differently

Individual Learning Plans​

Learning requires multiple approaches all the time for everyone, to really work. That’s why we are developing Individual Learning Plans for all of our students that allow us to track what works for our students and build from there.​

We are proud of our great staff and their achievements!
