High Tech High in San Diego has developed a specific, unique approach to learning at their group of eleven schools in San Diego. In these schools, their project-based curriculum provides students with real-world experiences to help them develop their understanding in a personalised, supportive learning environment.
On my US study tour, I visited High Tech High and attended their ‘Fall Residency’ to learn more about the schools approach and the way they implement Project Based Learning for their students.
