Our Guiding Principles
CIE is driven by three guiding principles related to factors critical for student learning: relevance, personalization, and connections. Based on these three principles, we’ve identified three strategies to impact student experience and outcomes:
Creating opportunities for internal connections within the collaborative
Nurturing and developing leaders within the collaborative schools
Influencing education and educational leaders outside the collaborative
Six schools working together around the world.
The Collaborative for Innovative Education connects innovative schools and educators who are likeminded in vision, thought process, quality of program, and ambition to share thinking, practices, and resources around the future of innovative education. The Collaborative’s purposes will be served as the six schools maximize the growth of every student in their care.
Why we got together
The Collaborative for Innovative Education stemmed from the idea of several heads of schools to formalize a dynamic think tank or network of likeminded educators who could collectively reflect on what is relevant in the world for student learning, engage in new conversations around the future of education, and commit to action to make a lasting impact on student experiences and outcomes.
CIE is a small, highly curated group of interactive schools who are nimble and aggressive in tackling the core work of learning. CIE intentionally sought the membership of both international schools and globally minded U.S. independent schools with the aim of aligning opportunities outside of specific regions, acting as a collective voice for innovative education.
