Island Park Elementary School


At Island Park Elementary, we believe in the power of a child’s mind. With decades of educational experience as teachers, school administrators, and parents, we know that a child’s capacity to learn and innovate is unleashed when we engage with them.

Our program is designed around the idea that students should be active participants in their learning and that they should experience increased control of that learning, too. We offer a flexible format so students can make choices about what and how they learn during their before-and after-school programming. Couple this with the training we provide to our staff, which teaches them to act as learning facilitators, and our program better positions Innovation Learning students for success. Over the decades that our team has worked as career educators, we have crafted the ideal framework that marries structured, research-based, and skill-building methods with adaptable, creative frameworks that allow children to become innovators.
