SPARK School at Kyrene de las Manitas
Kyrene School District is committed to providing engaging, challenging educational environments which promote and inspire passion for learning, leading, and achieving. The District has launched a new program that reimagines the standard classroom structure by combining innovative practices in learning environments, methods, and staffing.
The program is open to 120 students entering 3rd and 4th grades and is housed in a small section of Kyrene de las Manitas during the prototype years. The learning space is open and dynamic, equipped with furniture designed for flexibility and collaboration.
This new model is the culmination of two years of effort that involved more than 100 Kyrene stakeholders participating in a design process facilitated by ASU’s Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College. Community input and participation is an important part of the process and will continue through the prototype years.
