Intellectual Risk Taking

Fostering intellectual risk-taking empowers IUSD's learners to take on the responsibility of educational and emotional growth. Through shifting our focus toward instilling growth mindsets, we recognize the role of risk-taking and failure as a necessary part of the learning process. IUSD builds capacity for intellectual risk-taking through rigorous scholarship, along with opportunities to push past our comfort zones in order to develop into thriving, successful adults.
