Institute of Innovation @ Teague Middle School

Welcome to the Institute of Innovation @ Teague Middle School, our new Program of Exploration. The curriculum employs the SCPS ePathways skills for Future Ready Graduates. Through Project Based Learning, we will prepare students to be productive members of the community, informed members of a democratic society, and responsible members of the 21st Century global economy. This course will prepare students by using a positive, competitive business environment that will inspire them to create and innovate. We look forward to a challenging and productive school year.


This ground-breaking program will allow students to develop their own personal brand through reflection and self-evaluation. The students will then work in teams to complete a passion project by identifying a problem, researching and implementing a solution, and reflecting on personal goals.

Pursuing Our Passions and Creatively Solving Real-World Problems

Students enrolled in the Institute of Innovation courses focus on their passions in a student-centered learning environment.  They dig deep into learning about topics that motivate and inspire them.  We ask students questions such as, “What are you interested in?”, “What are you curious about?”, and “What do you care about and why it matters?” to get them thinking about the world around them and how they can impact others.
