Inquiry Hub is for the sort of student who is motivated to learn, to discover their world and shape their place within it. The sort of student who wants to apply what they’ve learned to make their mark on the community, be it local or global. The sort of student who can structure their own time and set their own goals for learning. The sort of student who would want to work on things like these.
Besides coursework (though often including it), Inquiry Hub students work on some pretty amazing things. Here’s a sample »
About half of students’ time at Inquiry Hub is left unscheduled, so that they can pursue what interests them and work on their courses. This time is known at iHub as DCL, named for the Dream Create Learn murals. Even within classes, students are expected to lead and to make decisions for themselves.
Just as attendance at Inquiry Hub is expected by default, students are expected to be at work during their DCL. While students might not be working on their courses or inquiries all of their time, they must always be doing something academic during school hours, be it writing a novel, investigating a new piece of scientific equipment, cooking food for fellow students, or researching something that interests them.
Yes, we're definitely a normal school. Totally.
