Welcome to Valley View Innovation School!
Valley View Innovation School (VVIS) is a PK-8 project-based learning school powered by curiosity. Valley View Innovation School offers a differentiated Project-Based Learning model designed specifically to support and nurture students who are identified as gifted or are ready for advanced/accelerated classes.
Our vision is for each student to develop a curiosity about learning, discover their interests and passions, and grow in their love of learning. We will do this by providing a welcoming, joyful, safe, and supportive learning environment where barriers are removed, and opportunities are presented to create personal learning pathways.
Project Based Learning (PBL) is a teaching method in which students gain knowledge and skills by working for an extended period of time to investigate and respond to an authentic, engaging, and complex question, problem, or challenge. Additionally, PBL is the ideal approach for advanced, accelerated, and gifted children!
Valley View Innovation School features:
- Accelerated learning to meet the needs of academically advanced students.
- "Cluster groupings" that allow advanced students to learn together.
- Project-Based Learning and cross-curricular connections.
- Immersion Studios – robotics, technology, culinary arts, art, music, science.
VVIS features flexible and sophisticated designs unexpected in a PK-8 school, including creative and intentional deviations from traditional classroom settings and structures. This innovative setting empowers students to learn content and live content. At each grade level, students build their academic year around three or more engaging, multi-disciplinary projects that rigorously address Colorado Academic standards. Fueled by each student’s engaging, thoughtful, and complex questions, projects come to life in one of six Immersion Studios – robotics, technology, culinary arts, art, music, and science. Projects incorporate more standards at one time and build cross-curricular connections.
