Think outside the desk!

When you first come through the doors of Inspire Academy, you will realize that you are in a different environment. Though Inspire Academy does participate in all state standardized tests, we understand that student progress and achievement is more important than a score on a state mandated exam. Our responsibility to our students is to ensure that when they leave Inspire Academy that they will be judged not by a test, but rather by the quality of their work and the quality of their character.  This approach is what truly sets Inspire apart.  To achieve this, we focus on instilling student excellence in three core areas:   

 

Mastery of Knowledge and Skills 

Character Development

High Quality Student Work

   

Demonstrate proficiency and deeper understanding: show mastery in a body of knowledge and skills within each discipline

 

Work to become effective learners: develop the mindsets and skills for success in college, career and life (e.g., initiative, responsibility, perseverance, collaboration)

 

Create complex work: demonstrate higher-order thinking, multiple perspectives and transfer of understanding

 

 

Apply their learning:  transfer knowledge and skills to novel, meaningful tasks

 

 

Work to become ethical people:  treat others well and stand up for what is right (e.g., empathy, integrity, respect, compassion)

 

Demonstrate craftsmanship:  create work that is accurate and beautiful in conception and execution

 

 

Think critically:  analyze, evaluate, and synthesize complex ideas and consider multiple perspectives

 

Contribute to a better world:  put their learning to use to improve communities (e.g., citizenship, service)

 

Create authentic work: demonstrate original thinking and voice, connect to real-world issues and formats and when possible, create work that is meaningful to the community beyond the school 

Communicate clearly: 

write, speak, and present ideas effectively in a variety of media within and across disciplies
