Demonstration School

• • •


The Demonstration School, a separate 501(c)(3) organization from Center for Inspired Teaching, puts Inspired Teaching’s instructional model into action in every classroom. The school believes that every student possesses the ability to think critically, learn and understand information, and solve complex problems – and that students should spend their time primarily engaged in these activities.


Philosophy & Teaching Approach

At the Inspired Teaching Demonstration School, students learn through an academically challenging, standards-based curriculum centered on the 4 I’s: Intellect, Inquiry, Imagination, and Integrity.


Teachers As Learners

The Inspired Teaching Demonstration School is a public charter school with a public purpose. As a partner site for the Inspired Teacher Certification Program, the school houses Inspired Teaching Fellows, new teachers working toward their full certification under the guidance of Master and Lead Teachers.
