Welcome to the Garrett Morgan School of Leadership & Innovation
Garrett Morgan School of Leadership & Innovation
To prepare a community of life-long learners for the 21st century global marketplace who will use public policy to create a more just, free, and equal world.
Learning Today…Leading Tomorrow
Garrett Morgan School of Leadership & Innovation will prepare the next wave of engaged citizens and civic leaders by using their communities as a classroom.
Garrett Morgan School Leadership & Innovation students will study public policy, urban design, and citizen engagement. Our goal is to prepare students to take an active role in addressing important social issues in their communities, while also conceptualizing the communities they desire to be part of.
Using an arts-based inquiry instructional approach; our curriculum is developed in a way to introduce students to a variety of academic subjects and materials with arts enhancement as well as peak student curiosity. Additionally, the curriculum will emphasize the development of social responsibility, communication, strong intellectual, and practical skills.
Housed on a new site, right off the lake, Garrett Morgan School of Leadership & Innovation is located in an arts-rich community. GMSLI will have a Facing History approach with a study on social justice and equity. GMSLI is for the student who appreciates the arts, enjoys thinking critically, and communicates well.
Students will graduate enriched and prepared for 21st century and community exposure with each senior participating in an internship.
Garrett Morgan Leadership & Innovation has 5 values in which our school stands on: Pride, Integrity, Responsibility, Leadership and Collaboration. These values are driven by a commitment to see our students become life-long learners, engaged citizens, and civic leaders. These values guide the way we interact with our students, parents, and community stakeholders.
