How Does One Design and Open an Innovative School?

← Back to Compass Stories

Technology is connecting schools across the country. Last week Compass School Leader, Jan Harrison, spoke to students in Boston!

Jan was honored to be invited to speak to a history class at the Cambridge School of Westin in the Boston area about designing innovative schools. The students are juniors at this private school that focuses on creative arts and music and they had read and discussed several books about the history of education in the United States. As their capstone project for the class, they are working on designing their “dream school” and they had lots of questions about how one actually goes about designing and launching an innovative school. It was a fun hour for all of us!
