High Tech High in brief:
High Tech High (HTH), a public charter school organization in San Diego, combines challenging academic curriculum with project-based learning, performance-based assessment, digital portfolios, and internships for all students. The HTH design principles—personalization, adult world connection, common intellectual mission, and teacher as designer—signal a radical departure from conventional high school structures and practices.
High Tech High has achieved success with a diverse student population, admitted by lottery. The 532 graduates in the Class of 2011 (from our five high schools) were admitted to college at a 97% rate, with 68% planning to attend a four-year university. Of 1,928 HTH graduates since 2003, 77% have graduated or are still enrolled in a post-secondary institution, with 25% of the college graduates holding degrees in STEM fields (science, technology, engineering, or mathematics). In contrast, only 17% of California college graduates earn degrees in STEM fields.
