"Cleveland Jewish News" Features Facing History-New Tech Open House
Earlier this fall, students and administrators from the new Facing History-New Tech School in Cleveland, Ohio, hosted an open house event for parents, local leaders, and community members. Freshman students presented their work building safe school culture, fighting violence in their communities, and helping abused children. The projects were part of a grade-wide challenge to "be the change."
"At Facing History-New Tech, our goal not only is to help our kids prepare for colleges and careers, but also focus on issues that really expand their perspective on the world," school principal Marc Engoglia told the Cleveland Jewish News.
The Facing History-New Tech High School is the first of its kind in the nation. A partnership between the Cleveland Metropolitan School District, Facing History and Ourselves, and New Tech Network, the school currently hosts about 60 freshman students, but will grow to serve 400 students in grades 9 through 12 by 2015.
