The Institute has reinforced my beliefs about teaching and learning in the most essentials ways by giving me the opportunity to explore them, question them and build on them based on the interaction with the beliefs of others. — participant, Inspired Teaching Institute 2012-13

About

At the Inspired Teaching Demonstration School, we believe that every student possesses the ability to think critically, learn and understand information, and solve complex problems – and that students should spend time in school engaged in primarily these kinds of activities.
