What does it mean to base educational practice on research?

At Indian Creek School, it means that everything the school does is informed by studies of how the brain works, how children learn best, and how people achieve success. The goal: to ensure that students benefit from the latest knowledge on the path to gaining a strong foundation for college and the rest of their lives.
