About Invent Learning Hub

Invent Learning Hub is an innovative new approach to traditional public education.  In the fall of 2019, ILH opened its doors to 100 elementary students who would become part of an experience-driven curriculum.  Through our Design Thinking and Pathways courses, students learn the skills and mindsets needed for livable wage careers in the 21st century.  These programs, combined with our rigorous math and ELA curriculum place our students on a path for success that they will carry on past their days at ILH.
