Our studio operates from 9 AM to 3:30 PM Monday through Thursday, and 9 AM to 12:30 PM Fridays. Learner schedules vary depending on their cohort and give learners and their families flexible attendance opportunities including two in person studio attendance days and three independent in-studio or at-home learning days, weekly. This program offers opportunities for support during independent learning days.
iLEAD Antelope Valley Studio is a positive, vibrant, and fun place to learn. The learning studio is located at 2110 West Avenue K in Lancaster, off of Avenue K and 20th West. When learners choose to come into the studio, they have access to facilitators, technology, breakfast and lunch through the National School Lunch Program, arts, and physical education. iLEAD Antelope Valley uses Project-Based Learning as its primary instructional model. Facilitators and administrators participate in ongoing professional learning throughout the year to ensure a growth mind-set is instilled not only in our learners but in our staff as well.
iLEAD Antelope Valley aims to empower learners to become conscientious, compassionate, and responsible citizens of the world. This is accomplished through a rigorous program based on the Common Core Standards and other components that are unique to iLEAD Schools, such as Project-Based Learning (PBL), Presentations of Learning (POLs) and Individualized Learning Plan (ILPs).
Project-Based Learning (PBL) is a teaching method that challenges learners to discover and construct meaningful understanding of curriculum through hands-on projects. These projects are multidisciplinary, include various learning modalities, and are aimed at answering a driving question.
Presentations of Learning (POLs) are the culmination of each project. During POLs, learners showcase their experiences and demonstrate the concepts they have mastered. These presentations provide an opportunity for families and the community to visit our studio to witness what has been learned.
Individualized Learning Plans (ILPs) are developed for every iLEAD Antelope Valley learner with input from facilitators, parents, and the learner. Through these plans, academic and social-emotional goals are set. Monitoring of learner ILPs is ongoing and includes all stakeholders.
The local communities we are proud to serve and be a part of include Lancaster, Mojave, Palmdale, Leona Valley, Rosamond, Quartz Hill, Lake Los Angeles, Pearblossom, Littlerock, Rancho Vista. Learners of other communities are welcome to make iLEAD Antelope Valley their educational home.
