Some comments from Innovation Lab Parents:

“Innovation Lab is preparing my child for real life: be accountable, responsible, a team player, and an innovator.”

“This experience has enlightened my daughter so much; she now has an eagerness to learn and work toward higher goals.”

“This has been a great experience for [our son]. He said to us at dinner that it has been really challenging academically but also really valuable. He said his teachers all know him incredibly well and that they work really well collaborating. The group work has been great, and he has gained great problem-solving skills as well as gaining lots of experience with public speaking… We all feel like these are real-world skills that will benefit him well into his future.”

Some comments from Innovation Lab Students:

“So far, this year has been amazing… The way that classes are structured and how enjoyable they are makes school days fly by. It is an amazing feeling. At the same time, I also feel like we have covered so much ground in only a couple of months in all subject areas.”

“Innovation Lab has inspired change in my life. I am more successful in all of my classes, both inside and outside of InLab!”

“This is a program for people who are eager to learn new things in a different way, and that is why I love it.”
