Kenneth Grover, principal at Innovations High School in Salt Lake City, Utah, and his staff created a comprehensive and fully re-imagined educational experience for 21st century high school students.
Relationships, risk-taking, community, and responsibility are key to success in public education. When asked about their high school experience, generally speaking, the number one response from students is: it’s boring. Students want schools that are student-centered. Students need flexibility and access to their curriculum, their teachers, and their education. At Innovations High School, students are in control of when they learn, not the teacher. The key to success at Innovations High is a strong mentor-teacher program. All 11th and 12th grade students are required to take college courses.
