Six Pillars of Innovation

Hopkins' pillars of innovation are the driving factors for how we will achieve Vision 2031. You can think of them as levers or drivers. The more we are able to activate and engage these levers, the more successful we will become in our mission. These pillars are the key ingredients to our ability to innovate and reimage our school system. To innovate, we must cultivate these six pillars:

  • Fearless teams who are not afraid to fail
  • Strategic partnerships 
  • Idea crowdsourcing 
  • Reimaging what school can be
  • Digital tools to help students and educators 
  • Mindsets that are open to innovation.
