The Innovative Class Model is an exciting new program for our elementary school students that focuses on three key elements: Clusters, Looping, and Stallion Stations. In this model, clusters are comprised of three content area experts who deliver engaging instruction. Looping refers to the practice of keeping the same teacher with a group of students for multiple years, allowing for deeper relationships and a better understanding of each student's needs. Finally, Stallion Stations are designated areas where students can work independently or in small groups on hands-on, multisensory activities that align with their interests. This model is grounded in research-based strategies for student achievement. This innovative approach to education encourages creativity, collaboration, and critical thinking, and is sure to inspire a love of learning in all students who participate.
