About Ingenium Schools
Ingenium Schools is transforming education by restoring joy and meaning to learning. Since 2009, Ingenium Schools has helped students build confidence, leadership, and a lifelong love of learning with the Ingenium Learning System, an easily replicable, standards-based educational model that promotes personal mastery. Ingenium Schools currently operates four charter schools serving students in Compton, Maywood, and Canoga Park.
Ingenium Wings is a free non-profit public independent study charter school serving students in grades K-12 who have fallen behind in their credits, want to graduate early, or are finding that they need an alternative to a traditional seat based program.
Wings offers a flexible, personalized educational environment to support parents with students in K-8 who want to home school their student. Wings offers blended learning where students can come in for enrichment classes and social interaction for K-5. Students in grades 6-8 will be moving from the home support model to true independent study with the structured support of their teacher.
Students in grades 9-12 will be doing a large portion of their schoolwork at home and will be coming to appointments a minimum of two times a week to receive individualized coaching from their teacher. The teacher will also be holding small group instruction classes in their subject area to be determined by the need of the students in the center.
Wings is seeking competent, energetic, student-centered educators with good resource center management and organizational skills, are able to motivate students, set and hold high expectations, welcome accountability and coaching, and are strong team players.
