The school year is now officially on!  We were so glad to get the students back and see all of their smiling faces.  What a difference a summer can make!  We have doubled our enrollment from last year and are looking forward to seeing our first Senior Class graduate this spring.This year we will be making a transition in our digital curriculum to a much more interactive Design Learning format.  We believe that students learn best by doing and not by passive absorption.  In order to accomplish this, we will be operating in several formats, Edivate (same as last year), Canvas (new this year), Moodle(same as last year) and our regular face time, traditional delivery method.  We will be sending out multiple emails to give you directions on how to monitor the progress of your students, please call the school if you are having trouble.  Personalized Learning takes a commitment by the student to OWN their education and it is our job to provide every opportunity for students to be able to do that while here at Weber Innovation.  All of our students have a program called Own It in their Edivate.  This is an outstanding learning experience that teaches students how they can really take hold and own their education and future.  In addition to Own It, all students will be assigned an adult mentor.  These mentors will be personally working with your student to help them keep on track and progressing.  It is going to be a great year and we will be rolling out the red carpet for all of our students, every single day!

Summer is moving along fast and before we know it school will be starting!   As our Mission Statement at Weber Innovation High indicates we are committed to providing the absolute best college and career ready education for our students through personalized learning and the opportunity to advance at their own pace.  Last year was a fantastic first year.  We were able to become accredited, our students finished at least 1.5 credits ahead of pace, our students earned over 250 college credits and our average ACT college placement score was second in the district at 19.4.!  There is a lot to be excited about and the future is bright at WIHS!

In June our faculty attended a specialized training at Stanford University’s prestigious dSchool,

a branch of Stanford’s Engineering School, and was trained in Design Learning.  We will be incorporating much of the innovative and creative principles of Design Learning within our Personalized Learning Curriculum which will provide our students with more project based learning opportunities and skills relevant to life after school.  It is going to be a great year!

Have a great rest of the summer!

Summer Session is in full swing, in fact we only have a few days left.  We have had a great learning experience with our new students, as well as many of our returning students over the past few weeks!  It has been a great time for students to get ahead with credits earned toward high school graduation and earn some college credit.  We want to wish everyone a great rest of the summer and remind all of our fall orientation date on August 2nd at 6 p.m. here at the school, for new students and then we will have general registration for the 2016-17 school year on Wednesday August 11th, from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m., for all students.  Be safe and have a great summer.

On behalf of the faculty and staff at Weber Innovation High School, we would like to thank all of our students for a fantastic first year!  It has been our pleasure to get to know and work with each one of you on a daily basis and we are excited to have all of you back next year.  We look forward to having our first graduation a year from now and want to let all know that we intend to have nothing less than 100% Graduation Rate at Weber Innovation High….anything less is simply unacceptable.

We will start our Summer Session on Tuesday May 31st at 8 a.m..  If you are registered, please be here a little before 8 so you are ready to go when we begin….it will be a great time!  For those of you who haven’t yet registered for summer session, please click on the Summer Session link and we will get you going. If you are not attending summer, 1. We feel sorry for you, and 2. We wish you a great summer!  

Incredible! That is all I can use to describe the great May we are having here at WIHS.  We have the greatest students in the world and we love seeing them walk through the doors each day here at the Innovation Center!  As mentioned in the last message we started the month by achieving Accredited Status with flying colors.  Just last week we hosted 50-60 School Superintendents from across the country to showcase all of the great things happening here at the High School and Innovation Center.  We have a lot of great things left for May as well!  First and foremost it is crucial that all parents and students realize the last day of instruction will be May 25th so please plan with your students accordingly….there is a lot to still get done!  The rest of our May schedule is as follows:

  • May 19th- 9 a.m. School Achievement Assembly
  • May 23rd- 8:30 a.m. School Field Trip
  • May 25th- Chromebook Check In, Student Checkout
  • May 25th- Yearbook Handout Day
  • May 26th- Last Day of School

Please make sure if your student has fines and/or fees they get them paid in the office.  Also we still have room for Summer Session, if you haven’t registered yet, follow the link on the front page of the school website and get signed up.  We have had a great first year here at WIHS, thank you to all for the great work and effort put into this school year!
