About Us

 

The educational experience of Wisconsin School of Innovation (N.E.W Innovation) is to prepare students for college, workforce, and life. Our unique learning experience provides a relevant and meaningful college and career preparatory education focused on the whole child. N.E.W. Innovation provides a choice for students in Green Bay Area Public schools, as well as students from Northeast Wisconsin in grades 7-9 (2019). Each year N.E.W Innovation will increase opportunities for students by adding additional grade levels until 2022-2023, when the school will offer grades 7-12. 

With this in mind, the school is designed to reduce and eliminate achievement gaps for students struggling in their traditional school,  provide an alternative and supportive option for students at-risk of dropping out, and increase graduation rates, as well as the overall career and college readiness of its students by working collaboratively with Northeast Wisconsin Technical College and the University of Wisconsin–Green Bay.  
 
N.E.W Innovation will assure strong vocational education by incorporating career pathways and content into course work and student experiences. Students will benefit from individualized learning plans designed to ensure their needs are met and knowledge/skill gaps identified are addressed ongoing instead of waiting until the end of the semester or school year.
 
Additionally, the school’s academic and support systems will create an environment that fosters civic engagement. Each student will participate in Launch daily. Launch provides students an opportunity to start each day with nutrition, engage in meaningful conversation, and offer support and encouragement to peers. In addition, Launch eases students into school in a welcoming environment rather than an academic class. The principal, teachers, and support staff will create curricular activities to intentionally build an educational community to support student behavior, 21st century job skills, social emotional health and lifelong learning.
