How do we Amplify Creativity?

At Mead we believe that to nurture creativity, we must model and value creative thinking, so creativity is at our core – from how we schedule time, to how we teach and learn, and beyond.  What does that look like?

  • A challenging inter-disciplinary curriculum that teaches and demands critical analysis and creative problem solving
  • A unique schedule with time for individual and group learning quests every week
  • A curricular emphasis on creative arts with at least one class every day (music, drama, art, or maker’s lab)
  • An approach that demonstrates respect for the myriad ways to solve problems and answer questions
  • Elective opportunities for all students Grade 3 and above
  • A  multi-month Individual Mastery Project developed and presented by each 8th grade student
