“This campus will provide an exciting educational environment that expands on the great programs TISD currently offers to our elementary students and their families,” said Micah Taylor, Director of School Innovation & Strategic Planning. “Utilizing an innovative personalized learning platform, project-based learning methods, and 1-to-1 technology, this campus will truly exemplify what it means to be on the leading-edge of the modern education system.”
Every student at the Global Leadership Academy will follow a curriculum that will adapt to their individual needs and pace of learning. Students at the GLA will gain leadership skills by working collaboratively on projects that allow students to learn interdisciplinary content within real-world contexts. The GLA will have both modified daily and weekly schedules, which includes a four-day instructional week for students. The learning environment at the GLA will be rigorous and challenging, and success will involve a medley of teacher, staff, student, and parent commitments.
“Our goal is that the Global Leadership Academy will be the first of many specialized TISD campuses to open in the coming years,” shared Micheal French, Terrell ISD Superintendent of Schools. “We recognize the growing demand for innovative and alternative education options, and we are both proud and excited to offer this school of choice to our community.”
