At IDEAS Academy we are dedicated to preparing students for our rapidly changing world, one that increasingly values conceptualization, innovation, and empathy. We are moving into an era where creative thinking is valued as much as critical thinking and basic communication skills are no longer enough. Those that thrive will have the ability to understand what moves humankind, the ability to create relationships, and the ability to think holistically.

We live in an unprecedented time, one that requires an educational shift to ensure our students are prepared for the future. At IDEAS Academy students learn to use their mind well and thrive in an era with exponential growth in technology and information. Our graduates are powerful communicators, innovators, and leaders.

IDEAS Students attend conference for The Tempest

The Issues and Ethics class travelled to UW-Madison to attend the Great World Texts[http://humanities.wisc.edu/public-humanities/gwt/about-gwt/] conference on Monday, April 3. This year, students around Wisconsin read William Shakespeare’s The Tempest and created projects to focus on a specific thematic lens within the book. Students attended plenary sessions in which one group from each school presented their project in front of the entire conference group, a Q&A with keynote speaker Margaret Atwood, and two gallery walks compiled of the creations of all of the participating schools.
