IHM received the award for “Innovation in Curriculum and Instruction” based on their “Learning Brain in Action” program. The faculty and staff have worked to master the research behind brain-based learning. Their integration of the arts, focus on authentic assessment, and identification of learning styles have all contributed to increasing student achievement
The award was presented at the 2010 NCEA Convention earlier this month in Minneapolis. An assembly was held at the school on April 20 to honor the Immaculate Heart of Mary staff and students.
