Massachusetts Innovation Schools

There are 57 innovation schools and academies in the Commonwealth established in urban, suburban, and rural communities. These include schools of varying grade levels (e.g., elementary, middle, and high school) and school types (e.g., new or conversions schools or academy models). Many of these schools are organized around specific themes like STEM, dual language instruction, International Baccalaureate (IB) programs, alternative education opportunities (like dropout prevention and dual enrollment at community colleges), and wraparound services.
