Greenwich High School Innovation Lab is teacher-led with the support of administration. Teachers are organized into two areas, Humanities and STEM. Teacher collaboration and planning are integral to the InLab programs. Student projects are managed by either the Humanities or STEM team, but input and feedback is received from all teachers. All teachers also share responsibility for the Design Studio required elective.
Any email to firstname.lastname@example.org will reach all ten team members.
