School Provided Information
The Intergenerational Schools' mission is to create, connect, and guide multigenerational communities of lifelong learners and engaged citizens. Founded in 2000, The Intergenerational School model is one of the highest-performing groups of public schools in Ohio. Our schools have been nationally recognized for their innovative, intergenerational approach to learning. With only 17 students in each classroom, our educational model creates a school that honors and respects children and enables each child to learn in a time frame and manner suited to their individual capabilities. To do this means rejecting age as the single most important factor in organizing the educational environment and experiences. The Intergenerational Schools are organized along developmental curriculum based on five stages of learning, rather than arbitrary age-based grade levels. Students progress through the stages based on their individual mastery of learning objectives. Student success is the constant; the time needed to accomplish that success is the variable. Our classrooms challenge traditional concepts of grade-leveled segregation. Each multi-age class is comprised of children across a three to four year age span. This provides a rich learning environment where students learn from each other and are taught to be role models from the start. Mentors and community partners are also part of the learning environment resulting in a multigenerational community. The Intergenerational Schools are proud members of Breakthrough Schools, Ohio’s highest-performing network of free, public charter schools.
