Introducing our Innovation Campus
The Innovation Campus is based in the highly successful Seed-to-Table Curriculum . Seed to Table uses inquiry based methods to teach science, social studies, mathematics, and language arts. The campus is staffed by a certified MMSD teacher who provides classroom based instruction in mathematics and language arts that supports the hands-on learning of science and social studies, taught through field based community service. The curriculum has shown remarkable success in engaging students in learning.
Seed-to-Table prepares youth for post-secondary education or careers in the represented areas. Students who are most likely to be successful in this program:
1) are over 15 years of age
2) have reading proficiency at least 9th grade and pre-algebra skills
3) have an interest in Urban Agriculture, Culinary Arts and/or Food Preservation
4) are motivated to commit to the program which operates inside and outside of normal school hours,
5) are open to the support, structure and guidance afforded by a small student-to-staff ratio.
