Greenwich High School Innovation Lab

Why we love them

Greenwich High School is transforming learning by introducing a “build from scratch” school within a school model that will be piloted in the fall of 2015. The GHS Innovation Lab is a flexible and personalized learning environment devoted to fostering creativity, curiosity, and purpose. Teachers blend core disciplines in a project-based approach, allowing students to explore their interests and harness their innovative potential. Students are encouraged to discover their passions and are supported as they make an impact in the community at large.

What we’re doing

GLP has contributed its vision, industry expertise and facilitation capabilities to the leadership team since the beginning. Working together, we are designing and building the model for the Innovation Lab. We have chronicled some of the early work in our blog:

High Tech High and H.T.H. Graduate School of Education

Why we love them

What’s not to love? High Tech High (HTH) has led the way in redefining what student centered learning can look like, with design principles of personalization, adult world connection, common intellectual mission, and teacher as designer. Its innovative Graduate School of Education is the only accredited graduate school in the nation that is embedded in a K12 system. At HTH, students and practitioners are front and center to achieve deeper learning

What we’re doing

We are faculty and co-designers for the Education Leadership Academy at High Tech High’s Graduate School of Education - the only graduate school attached to a K12 school system! Through the program, we support school leaders and teachers to vision and lead change inside their schools.


Most Likely to Succeed

Why we love them

Ted Dintersmith wants to change education for all students so they’ll be ready for an innovation economy--and it’s hard to resist his vision. We’ve been working with Ted, Tony Wagner and filmmaker Greg Whiteley (One Potato Productions) since 2012 to change the national conversation with a feature length documentary: Most Likely to Succeed (MLTS). MLTS premiered at Sundance and has been to numerous other prestigious film festivals and is open for community screenings, which means the fun is just beginning!

What we’re doing

As strategic educational advisors to the film, we are supporting community screenings and conversations about how we can move the needle in transforming school, with students at the center. We continue to partner with the MLTS team to build a movement for change.
