School Description

Discover how Ingenium Schools’ bold new approach to education reform provides an environment where your child becomes a partner in their own educational progress.

Ingenium Charter School in Canoga Park is operated by non-profit Ingenium Schools, which also manages Barack Obama Charter School located in Los Angeles.

The schools share an award-winning curriculum, the Re-Inventing Schools Model (RSM). This Model features an innovative learner-centered classroom instead of the traditional teacher-centered classroom. As a result, students become accountable for their own progress and develop a lifelong pattern for achievement and proficiency

Ingenium Charter School features: 

·         Focus on student accountability – students advance at their own pace through an innovative performance-based curriculum

·         Full day kindergarten.

·         CHARACTER COUNTS! character and ethics education program

·         Up-to-date technology in classrooms and a digital library.

·         A terrific after school program featuring a power hour of tutoring, creative arts, sports, and a healthy snack

·         Online access for parents to monitor their child\'s academic progress

·         Guiding your children on their journey to the college or university of their choice. College starts here!

Ingenium Charter School\'s systematic approach to ensure student learning is called the Re-Inventing Schools Model (RSM). It features shifting away from time based (grades K, 1, 2 etc) to a performance based student advancement. It has been provided to us by our partner, the Re-Inventing Schools Coalition of Wasilla, Alaska. It was used by the Chugach School District of Alaska when it was one of the first two school districts to win the Malcolm Baldrige Award, the only Presidential award for organizational performance excellence in 2001.

This Re-Inventing Schools Model is effective at getting students to take ownership for their learning. It entails a definite shift away from teacher-directed, to student-centered learning. Students move at their own pace (as fast or as slow as needed) through developmental levels in standards, rather than age-based grade levels. End-of-level assessments demonstrating proficiency will determine a student\'s advancement into the next standard level. Students become the drivers of their education — not the teacher!

  • Great school. The staff is very approachable, and clearly cares about the students.

    Their motto is College Starts Here, and I see it at every turn.

    ICS is the first elementary school with pre college electives. As schools are cutting these sorts of programs, Ingenium has found a way to incorporate Spanish, Business, Law, Nutrition, and tons of other courses.

    I couldn't be happier. My daughter has advanced 2 grade levels in one year.
