 Amy Kenton is a longtime educational administrator who currently serves as CEO of the Howard Gardner Multiple Intelligence (MI) Charter School. Serving the Scranton, Pennsylvania, community, Amy Kenton and her staff take much of their core educational philosophy from the work of Scranton native Howard Gardner, who taught cognition and education as a Harvard University professor.

 Gardner’s groundbreaking work with the university’s Project Zero program prompted school reform initiatives. At the same time, his MI theory of intelligences mapped nine distinct categories of intelligence. These intelligence types extend from the verbal- linguistic and mathematical-logical, to the interpersonal and intrapersonal.

 Integrating Gardner’s multiple intelligence theory, the Scranton institution was established in 2005 as the private Howard Gardner School for Discovery. In 2012, a decision was made to transform the school into a non-tuition public charter school as a way of expanding its community reach.
