Created by doctoral level educators with experience as teachers, administrators and college faculty, Innovation Learning programs are predicated upon research shown to directly increase academic achievement. More specifically, programs such as Innovation Learning that focus on Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) have shown to improve attitudes toward STEM fields and careers, increase test scores (as compared to non-participants), the pursuit of college and the intention of majoring in the STEM fields. The implementation of robotics, coding and other higher tech curricular components, which is included as part of our regular daily curriculum has been proven to result in pronounced increases in math and science test scores. Furthermore, our programs result in an increased positive attitude toward school which has been shown to have a high correlation with overall academic achievement.
Innovation Learning that expose students to STEM within the context of a Project Based Learning Framework which incorporates play, simulation and physical activity as a vehicle to enhance content based knowledge. Our philosophy is predicated upon research that has yielded a variety of positive effects. Our curriculum, physical fitness activities and use of The Buck Institute’s Gold Standard for Project Based Learning have all been shown to increase prosocial behaviors and improve academic performance on achievement tests and grades. Similarly, our deliberate focus on 21st century skills such as communication, collaboration, critical thinking and creativity ensure that our children are better prepared to attend school the next day.
Our efforts to improve academic achievement do not stop with our curriculum. All of our students participate in a structured homework support period facilitated by licensed educators. They ensure that children not only complete their homework each day but that the homework is checked and assistance is provided. This kind of success has been shown to beget success as students that attend academic before and after school programs like Innovation Learning attend more school days than their peers which is yet another factor that has a direct correlation to overall school performance.
