The Inspired Teaching Demonstration School believes 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.


Philosophy & Teaching Approach

The Inspired Teaching Demonstration School implements the philosophy and instructional approach of Center for Inspired Teaching. Methods of instruction include inquiry-based and active learning approaches where the teacher serves as facilitator and coach to support student learning.


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 who work toward their full certification under the guidance of Master Teachers.
