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 SPARK, a new program that reimagines the standard classroom structure by combining innovative practices in designing and using space, methods such as project-based and blended learning, along with creative staffing structures to support all learners.
The program is housed on the campus 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.
