A reluctant middle school student responded to a summer maker challenge and ended up demonstrating his sports training product prototype at a White House tech innovation fair.
By embracing inquiry-based learning and encouraging students to help shape their own classroom experiences, Wildwood IB World Magnet School has created an atmosphere that grooms students to be life-long learners.
An inquiry-based curriculum requires both planning and flexibility, as well as a teacher knowing the students well enough to anticipate their interests and limits.
Wildwood IB World Magnet School uses the inquiry-based model to put students in charge of their learning, with lessons that stem from student questions and harness the power of curiosity.
At Wildwood IB World Magnet School, teacher collaboration fosters a supportive professional culture, lessens teacher conflict, and provides students with schoolwide best practices.
Putting students in the driver's seat of their parent-teacher conferences creates opportunities for reflection, engagement, and agency.
The IB's Primary and Middle Years Programs let students pursue their interests and develop their collaborative, thinking, and problem-solving skills within a rigorous academic framework.
