​​​DESIGN YOUR EDUCATONAL EXPERIENCE

re-designing high school

When we began planning for iLEAD, we used a process called Design Thinking.  This methodology helps solve problems by gathering insights from and creating solutions for the “end user.”  we asked students “How would you improve your high school experience?”

what Students  said  is the foundation of how iLEAD looks and feels, how teachers teach, how students learn, and how adults support every student in the school. 


 Students said:  


  • School isn't relevant.  We want to know why we are learning what we're learning.

  • Get us out of desks!

  • Bring an end to days moving from teacher lecture to teacher lecture.

  • We are afraid we'll graduate without talking to even one adult about what we might do after high school. 

  • No one in my family has graduated from college.  How do I get there?

  • Help me understand how I can get a job making enough to take responsibility for my family.

  • I'm bored as I wait for others in my class to catch up
