Nathaniel H. Wixon Innovation School

Welcome

Welcome to the Wixon Innovation School!  Our 550 fourth and fifth grade students are enjoying immensely the educational opportunities afforded to them at our school.

This is our seventh year as an Innovation School.  The faculty is exceptionally dedicated to the three “autonomies” that make our school unique from others even in our own district.

The major autonomy is an extended school day.  Additional time has allowed us to develop “enrichment blocks,” as well as  “flexible grouping blocks”. The enrichment block provides us with the opportunity to create individualized schedules for all of our students for remediation, acceleration, and to support individual student interests. The flexible grouping blocks provide additional time for teachers to work in teams to deliver instruction to small groups of students with similar needs. Each of these blocks were developed to support our goal of creating confident learners and instilling a passion for learning in every one of our students.

Our other autonomies are curriculum enhancement and professional development.  Our teachers currently work as teams in weekly professional learning communities and during faculty meetings to develop their professional practice and enhance student learning.

Beyond our extended school day, we offer a myriad of after school programming. This programming includes a menu of after school activities.

We take great pride in our innovation school and have always celebrated the good fortune of having excellent parent involvement and support from our community.  We welcome you to stop in and visit our school!
