Innovation High: Unleashing Education's Potential

Welcome to Kent Innovation High

WE ARE an Incubator of Innovation for Students & Educators!

We are very different from traditional high schools. With a focus on project-based learning and collaboration with both students and teachers, Kent Innovation High  demonstrates some of the best thinking in the country about teaching and learning. Success for all students is a driving goal of this "lab" school, which serves as a learning laboratory for teachers and administrators who want to innovate back in their own schools.

From the glass walls and integrated presence of technology, to the ongoing teamwork of students and just-in-time facilitated learning, the physical and cultural environment is designed to:

  •    Personalize learning for all students
  •    Increase the relevance of academics to foster student engagement
  •    Cultivate the student voice so students "own" their education
  •    Foster trust, respect and responsibility among students and staff

Based on a national model out of Napa, California called The New Tech Network , this school serves as an incubator of innovation for all our schools. Students from all of our districts attend and their educators come to learn and innovate.
