Employer Description

Mare Island Technology Academy (MIT) was established in 1999 as an Independent Charter by deeply committed community members seeking to create a safe learning environment with rigorous academic standards, specializing in technology, innovative instruction, and project-based learning. MIT Academy has grown since its inception and currently has a waitlist at each grade level. To meet the increasing demand from parents and students, MIT will open Griffin Academy, August 2018 beginning with 140 sixth and seventh-grade students and adding a new class each year thereafter. Griffin Academy will offer an engaging, rigorous, and personalized academic curriculum, Summit Learning, that ensures students master and apply grade-level content. In addition, Griffin students will engage in a social-emotional curriculum that builds skills allowing them to make good choices, maintain healthy relationships with peers and adults, become self-aware, and ultimately become self-directed learners.

At Griffin Academy, the framework for the instructional design in the core academic and technology courses is from Summit Learning. The curriculum was developed by the Stanford Center for Assessment, Learning, and Equity (SCALE), based on an analysis of the Summit Charter Schools’ curriculum, data, and feedback by students, teachers, administrators, and parents. Since 2013, Summit Public Schools has partnered with the Stanford Center for Assessment, Learning, & Equity (SCALE) to develop performance assessment tools and systems that support and build teachers' capacity to build better performance assessments and to implement performance assessment effectively and equitably. MIT Griffin Academy, as a Summit Learning partner school, is the beneficiary of this extensive, research-based curriculum effort. Spanish will be added to this group in 2019-20.
