High Tech High

Project of Larry Rosenstock

High Tech High began in 2000 as a single charter high school launched by a coalition of San Diego business leaders and educators. It has evolved into an integrated network of schools spanning grades K­-12, housing a comprehensive teacher certification program and a new, innovative Graduate School of Education.

The learning model is to prepare students to be savvy, creative, quick­-thinking adults and professionals in a modern world. It has scrapped classroom design, divisions between subjects, independence from the community, and assessments that only one teacher ever sees. Instead, the textbook-­free school fosters personalized project learning with pervasive connections to the community. As the school’s name implies, technology enables many of the projects students create. And teachers routinely craft lessons that blend subjects, reflecting how interwoven they truly are.
