INPS Core Principles
Heterogeneity + Collaboration
Schools and classrooms are heterogeneous and use collaborative structures that build on the strengths of each member of the school community to optimize learning.
Expansion of the 21st century schools beyond the four walls of the building motivates adolescents and enhances their capacity to successfully participate in modern society.
Language + Content Integration
Strong language skills develop most effectively in context and emerge most naturally in a purposeful, language rich, interdisciplinary, and experiential program.
Localized Autonomy + Responsibility
Linking autonomy and responsibility at every level within a learning community allows all members to contribute to their fullest potential.
One Learning Model For All
All members of our school community work in diverse, collaborative groups using hands-on projects; put another way, the model for adult learning and student learning mirror each other.
