Greenwich High School Innovation Lab is teacher-led with the support of administration. Teachers are organized into two areas, Humanities and STEM. Coteaching is common and both areas are linked closely to a year-long thematic arc. Teacher collaboration and planning is scheduled in teams.
Student projects are managed by either the Humanities or STEM team, but input and feedback is received from all teachers. All teachers share responsibility for the Design Studio 10 elective.

Any email to ghsinnovationlab@greenwich.k12.ct.us will reach all six team members.
