Who we are
Instruction at New Tech is different than at most high schools. We use Project Based Learning (PBL) almost exclusively and rely on our smaller environment to be more tuned to each other’s needs. Team Teaching allows teachers to integrate their respective curriculums to enhance the power of PBL. Students are given a project with an end-goal in mind, and are provided workshops, tutorials, and other scaffolding which they apply toward completion of their final product.
Students do not work in isolation at New Tech.
Projects are completed in groups, graded by quality, presentations, and group process. Students collaborate to solve problems together and come up with better solutions than they could individually.
We work to create a welcoming atmosphere where everyone feels accepted.
Students and teachers join together to make our environment a positive and safe one so the emphasis can be on teaching and learning. The educational environment reflects a professional atmosphere; there are no bells and relationships between staff and students are more like a mentor/mentee rather than teacher/student.
Collaboration is maximized and lecturing is minimized!
A different relationship is built; one established on a higher level of trust, respect, and responsibility than typically found in most schools.
We cannot wait to meet you!
