We are partners with the students at Innovate Manhattan Charter School. Working in collaboration with their personal coaches, students design a personalized schedule that specifies how, where, when, and with whom they will best meet their academic needs. With time and practice, students grow to be true managers of their educational process. At Innovate, students are encouraged to take an active role in the school and building community. For instance, students have recently led the development of Girls Lead International, Social Studies/History, and Peer Mediation and Service clubs.Using the magazine as an example, students on their own initiative created their own magazine, where they write articles about ecology and student rights.
