Who We Are
Innovations opened its doors as a public K-12 charter school in August 2006 with 400 students across grade levels, in a highly diverse section of Las Vegas. The cofounders and committee to form envisioned a school that was family and community oriented, with a commitment to the students, illustrated by our motto of Educating for Life.
Over the years we have maintained a highly diverse population with an inclusive approach for our population of students with special needs as well as becoming a Title I school serving students in lower income households.
The school continues to offer wrap-around services for our families to accommodate their before and after school needs as well as our commitment to innovation. We have changed our school curriculum over time to accommodate the needs of our students, as well as anticipating the business and educational opportunities for our students beyond the school's walls.
Our initial Global Curriculum involved students and teachers in interest-based enrichment activities that have changed each year. We have held family educational conferences in the content areas of math, science, and reading in which family members become learning partners with their children. Our most recent movement to engage students and families, while developing a robust academic rigor, is to work toward becoming a Nevada Governor's Designated STEM school. Through the Governor's program, STEM practices will be regularly integrated into daily instruction across most disciplines. Teachers will link student learning to future careers using year-long STEM projects as a school-wide STEM focus.
