The Northstar Institute
At Northstar we understand that to make good on our promise of providing students with a great education, we need outstanding educators and school leaders. We know that great educators never stop learning, so to make sure Northstar students have access to the best educators and leaders, we have established the Northstar Institute – a professional development facility where educators and school leaders receive training, coaching, and support to help them grow both professionally and personally.
To actively promote a community culture of learning and well-being, we believe it is vital that each Northstar staff member has a shared understanding of the Northstar Approach and how to implement it in practice. The Northstar Institute will thus provide training in the various progressive methodologies underpinning the Northstar Approach and facilitate close collaboration and knowledge-sharing between educators to foster cross-disciplinary learning and teaching.
While The Northstar Institute is primarily designed to support Northstar faculty members in becoming familiar with the Northstar Approach and to deliver engaging and meaningful learning experiences for our students, we also welcome and encourage parents of our students who wish to better understand the Northstar Approach and how to best support their child’s learning outside school as well as outside educators who seek to improve their own teaching practices by gaining a deeper understanding of progressive educational methodologies.
If you have any questions or suggestions regarding the Northstar Institute, we would love to hear from you. Please get in touch on firstname.lastname@example.org
