Portfolio of School Models
No one school model is a perfect fit for every student and every community. To diversify the learning opportunities available in schools and districts, Innovative Schools has compiled a Portfolio of modern, high quality, high performing school models. These models have a strong record of successful replication in public schools around the country in urban, suburban, and rural settings and are ready to be replicated in Delaware. Each can be implemented as a school-with-in a school or as a stand-alone school.
Innovative Schools’ research on new school models is ongoing and is conducted with input from Delaware educators and other critical stakeholders. The models have complementary learning programs, and will build a cohesive K-12 education program and a network of unique, high performing schools across the State.
Research School Models
For schools or districts with a model already in mind, Innovative Schools can conduct the research and due diligence to ensure its fit for the school and community. Dawn Downes to learn more at email@example.com
