Facing History-New Tech School Welcomes Community
Last week, the newly-opened Facing History-New Tech High School in Cleveland, Ohio, welcomed parents, community and business leaders, and others to campus to showcase its project-based learning structure, emphasis on technology, and unique school culture.
Among those in attendance was Jesse Moyer of KnowledgeWorks, an organization that works with schools and communities to ensure that students in the United States are prepared for college and a meaningful career.
“When I returned to the office after the visit, one of my colleagues asked how the visit went,” Moyer wrote on his blog, World of Learning. “My response was as simple as my test of successful schools, ‘They have something very special going on up there.’”
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.
