At the Institute for Excellence in Education, we focus on supporting students by increasing the capacity of those who serve them, teachers and school leaders!

Positively Impacting Schools
Meet List Elementary School
Lorenz C. List Elementary School in Frankenmuth is home to approximately 520 K-4th grade students. The teachers are dedicated to providing the best possible learning opportunities for their students. In the winter of 2018, List teachers received training on IEE’s Focused Instructional Model (FIM) for math. Teachers were active and engaged throughout the PD and implemented FIM for a few months at the end of the school year in order to get the program up and running in classrooms. The 2018-2019 school year was the first full year of FIM implementation for List Elementary, and their M-STEP scores skyrocketed!
The Focused Instructional Model in Math has provided us with not only a focus on the power standards that our students need most, but also data to support curricular decision making. We have never experienced such purposeful focus on math, based on solid data, to drive our instructional practices.
