The Inspired Teaching Demonstration School currently serves students Pre-School (age 3) through 7th grade. We will offer Pre-School through 8th grade by 2016. The standards-based curriculum is centered around the belief that children are inherently good and have an innate desire to learn; that every child can be successful in school; and that children's energy, unique talents, and individuality are assets, not obstacles. Active, hands-on experiential learning will be primary. We believe every student possesses the ability to think critically, learn and understand information, and solve complex problems, and that students should spend time in school engaged primarily in these kinds of activities. Young people will learn to read and write and achieve at high levels without having to surrender their intellectual curiosity and passion for learning.
