Hello Ingenium Charter Middle School Families!
It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the 2020-2021 school year. I am very excited to serve all of you as your principal and prioritize joy in learning.
Ingenium Charter Middle School (ICMS) houses about 250 students in grades 6-8. We are co-located on the Sutter Middle School campus located in Winnetka, CA. Within the walls of ICMS, students learn how to work at their own pace, how to monitor their learning and how to deal with conflicts that arise in middle school through social-emotional learning. Students consistently work on iReady in ELA and Math, and monitor their diagnostic results. In addition, students learn and practice the school wide behavior expectations known as our Dragon Code; Integrity, Commitment, Mutual Respect and Safety through the use of huddles and restorative practices.
There are also a number of extra-curricular activities for our students that include; athletics (volleyball, football, etc.), leadership, journalism, and dance during school and/or in our Expanded Learning Program (ELP). In the 2020-2021 school year, we are excited about building upon our successes academically, athletically and continuing our positive influence in the community. During this school year, we will be focusing on improving ELA, Math and school culture by reviewing data and refining our instruction to ensure all of our students are performing at their highest potential.
At ICMS, our aim is to create an active engaging learning environment where every student develops a love of learning and develops the tools necessary to be successful.
Thank you for visiting Ingenium Charter Middle School’s website and for taking the time to learn a bit about our school. It is my hope this website will provide you with valuable information about ICMS and serve as a positive communication link between school and home. We know the success of every child depends upon a team approach between school and home; therefore, we encourage you to stay involved and participate in parent meetings and school events.
