High School – Reimagined
If students want to learn, you cannot stop them. If they don’t, you cannot make them. Given a pathway to learning that inspires and motivates, any student will learn! But most high schools still rely on outdated curriculum models with classes in disconnected silos, like Biology or Social Studies. At Polytech, we offer courses such as Urban Agriculture Lab and Diasporas and the Coming to America, which pull from many disciplines, and offer real-world, challenging, hands-on learning while meeting state academic standards.
Research shows that students learn best when they are surrounded by teachers and students that care about them, which is why school must be personal. And to keep students engaged, the subject matter must be both challenging, and relevant to their lives.
We have organized our learning program into 6 Interconnected Learning Pathways, designed to engage students, teachers and families in the learning process, as well as in the end result. Our goal is to graduate students who are thoughtful, engaged citizens prepared to achieve in life after high school, whatever direction they choose to go.
