Huntley 158 has become recognized at the state and national levels for being a leader in 21st Century Education. Primary among the drivers of innovation in our schools has been the District’s Always Initiative, an umbrella concept focused on developing programs throughout the District that break down the barriers of the traditional school day.
Under that philosophy, the District’s has launched a pioneering 1:1 initiative, recognized as the largest district-wide rollout of personalized learning devices in the State of Illinois, and Huntley High School’s unparalleled Blended Learning Program.
Out of those programs have grown a number of distinctive opportunities for Huntley 158 students, including a recently announced only-of-its kind partnership with Centegra Health System. Through the HHS Medical Academy, some 30 students will take part in the inaugural Youth Residency Program, offering them the opportunity to receive intensive job shadowing and mentorship with healthcare professionals throughout the Centegra system.
Innovation in Education Days
To meet growing demand from education professionals to visit and learn about our programs, the District has begun to offer a full day of professional development for administrators, school business officers, and educators regarding innovative solutions on issues facing educational institutions.
Our Innovation in Education Days offer a full day of sessions, networking/Q&A, and classroom visits. Each day will begin with a keynote presentation on innovation from a panel of district administrators and will follow with discussions, sessions, and site visits related to your purpose for attending.
