James Hill

Innovation School Fellow: 2021

Edison School of the Arts Replication

An Innovation School Fellow team representing Edison School of the Arts is working to replicate the successful model of Edison School of the Arts, a K-8 Indianapolis Public Schools’ Innovation Network School that gives students an arts-driven education through experiences, exposure, and community partnerships. James Hill will act as the school leader for this replication, with support from Edison School of the Arts Executive Director Nathan Tuttle and Principal Amy Berns.

Edison School of the Arts converted to an Innovation Network School in 2017 and was able to leverage the expanded autonomy to increase student enrollment and academic achievement. The school uses data-driven strategies to impact student learning.
