Students experience a full-day program at the LEAD Innovation Studio in a leased office space, where they immerse themselves in a flexible, personalized learning environment, focused on problem-solving skills, project-based learning and professional experiences.

At the LEAD Innovation Studio, students take an active role in their learning, while teachers provide the support and mentoring all students need. Cutting-edge technology allows students to work toward their individual goals with teachers facilitating their learning.

The program started in the 2017-2018 school year with freshmen, while 11th and 12th graders will be able to enroll in a half-day program, including professional studies internships, fanning out across the community to learn directly from professionals in the fields that interest them.

Over the next four years, the full-day program at the LEAD Innovation Studio will expand to include sophomores, then juniors and then seniors, with the upperclassmen continuing to experience professional studies internships.

While students take all their classes at the LEAD Innovation Studio, they are still Park Hill High School Trojans or Park Hill South Panthers, and they can participate in activities at their home high schools, such as band, sports and dances.
