Free To Think. Inspired To Lead.

After so many years of stagnating in ideas and practices from the agrarian age, education is suddenly awash in new ideas.

All around us we hear about the value of technology, project-based learning, deeper learning, new brain research and a better understanding of how kids——or any of us, for that matter——really learn.

At iLEAD we’ve built a model based on the what we believe to be the best of all that is out there. We believe passionately in project-based learning not because it’s a fad but because it goes to the heart of how kids learn. We’ve incorporated technology not as a spiffy add-on but as an organic part of the learning process in the 21st century.

We value and encourage leadership not just as a part of a career track but by instilling in each learner the confidence and character that inspire others.

It’s not unusual that we want our learners to think for themselves. But to do this requires a grounding in the arts, in design and in humanities, and the need to feel at home in the world. For us, “thinking for themselves” is not just about solving problems but about an organic vision of the world they live in and one they will inherit.

Finally, we value the social and emotional development of our learners. We believe there is an implicit, as well as an explicit, curriculum to teach. Our goal is nothing short of learning, to change the world.






Learning foreign languages and cultures makes our learners compassionate, open-minded world citizens.



Practicing leadership from a young age prepares our learners for a lifetime of listening, collaborating, inspiring——leading.



Encouraging learners to work in teams, take risks and learn from failure nurtures the ability to innovate and ignites their entrepreneurial spirit.



Creating and exploring the world through the artistic experience enhances all subject areas for our learners.



Participating in project-based learning leads to more meaningful experiences and a deeper understanding for our learners.

If a child can’t learn the way we teach, maybe we should teach the way they learn.

Our Community

We are a PEOPLE OF PURPOSE, establishing a NEW PARADIGM for education. We are a caring culture that VALUES COMMUNITY, which contributes to a better society.

ilead Our Community
Our Community

Our focus on developing empathy allows for respect and invites an engaging, positive, rich environment. We believe people are natural-born learners. We provide opportunities for discovery and wonder to nurture a lifelong love of learning. Success is demonstrated through leadership, self-direction, problem-solving skills, creativity, collaboration, innovation and service. We embrace stepping out of our comfort zone. We value joy, fun, choice and voice, and we celebrate that our differences contribute to our common humanity.

Where culture thrives, passion follows.

— Zappos —

The principle goal of education in the schools should be creating men and women who are capable of doing new things, not simply repeating what other generations have done; men and women who are creative, inventive, and discoverers, who can be critical and verify, not accept every thing they are offered.

iLEAD News Releases

It is no longer functional to define education as a process of transmitting what is known; it must now be defined as a lifelong process of continuing inquiry. And so the most important learning of all, for both children and adults, is learning how to learn, the skills of self-directed inquiry.

Important information regarding confidential student data

There is ongoing litigation between the California Department of Education and the Concerned Parent Association. A notice issued by State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson states, “The lawsuit accuses CDE of widespread, systemic non-compliance by local educational agencies with the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and Section 504. The CDE denies these allegations and is actively defending the litigation.”

The court has ordered CDE to release student and parent information to provide personally identifiable information (PII) – an act that can only be taken as an exception to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). As a result, we are providing notice of the court order and directions to anyone wishing to object.

Please be advised that CDE will notify parents or students of whom are required to disclose information and those individuals may object directly to the court regarding this disclosure using the PDF link below:
