Innovation Preparatory Academy opens for 2020-2021 school year
InPrep helps students learn and thrive, regardless of their location. Students can attend in-person at school classes, a fully mobile experience with special technology that mimics the classroom atmosphere, or a flexible model of in-person and fully mobile learning. InPrep is equipped to provide a seamless student experience for students, to accommodate whatever choice they make.
InPrep's interactive mobile technology, including smart 360-degree cameras and microphones in classrooms, creates a live feed of the classroom for students who are learning at home. This technology allows students to participate in the classroom experience, work directly with teachers, and collaborate with classmates.
"Our approach to education addresses the student as a whole," said Sara Capwell, principal at inPrep. "InPrep's education model assures that every student receives differentiated learning to reach individual goals and achieve high academic, social and emotional success."
InPrep's curriculum is based on the WISH approach: Wellness, Innovation, Science and Health. Through this approach, students build fundamental skills such as collaboration, critical thinking, and social and emotional learning.
A partnership with AdventHealth West Florida Division has created unparalleled wellness opportunities for inPrep students. AdventHealth provides nutrition and lessons/workshops, guest speakers that include surgeons, nurses, residents, and others, and on-site health clinics for flu shots, physicals and immunizations.
In addition, inPrep built a Wellness Walk Track, which is an indoor walking loop, for students and teachers to use. Students take wellness breaks twice daily to rest and reenergize so that they are at their optimal potential.
Technology is threaded into the student experience to strengthen reasoning and communication skills, preparing students for high school, college and beyond. The school is part of the Connected City campus being developed by Tampa-based developer Metro Development Group. The Connected City encompasses two Metro Places communities, Epperson and Mirada, each with its own multi-acre Crystal Lagoon and Metro's exclusive ULTRAFi high-speed internet technology - the fastest internet speeds available with up to 1 Gigabit of speed.
"InPrep's WISH approach closely mirrors our vision for technology, innovation, health and wellness in the Connected City campus," said John Ryan, CEO of Metro Development Group. "The school's new state-of-the-
