Spotlight School: Ingenium Schools

Ingenium Schools, located in southern California, began their journey toward a personal mastery system in 2009. Glenn Noreen attended RISC conferences in Alaska to learn more about the RISC model and before having a school. He is now President of Ingenium Schools which comprises three charter schools. They plan to add one grade level each year until they are able to serve students through high school.

“… no one has ever helped my child learn to write. I have never ever seen him put that much on a piece of paper. Thank you so much. . . He likes it here and talks about his homework and class work. He is even reading his essays out loud to everyone in the family.” ~ Barack Obama Charter School parent -
