Educational Alternative - Pinellas High Innovation
Pinellas High Innovation's focus is on secondary intensive academic intervention for students in grades 5-9 who are working to achieve grade level expectations.
Each student's daily schedule includes four academic blocks. One block provides intensive reading instruction and one provides intensive math instruction. The third academic block provides integrated instruction in science, social studies and language arts. In addition, students will have one elective block per day. The elective period includes art, music, health, physical education, study skills, career exploration and vocational experiences in a rotational wheel.A strong student service model is in place to give students the individual attention and support they need to be successful. The research-based concepts of the true middle school are infused into the philosophy, curriculum and organization of these schools.
Special strategies include a low teacher/pupil ratio, small group and individual instruction, computer-assisted instruction, interdisciplinary teaming, a strong parental involvement component, a hands-on experiential curriculum, emphasis on personal responsibility and positive discipline, and business/community partnerships.For more information about Pinellas High Innovation, visit their website at Pinellas High Innovation.
