High Tech High

Final image from a fascinating visit to High Tech High in San Diego, California. This is the pre-High SChool alongside the origibnal High Tech High with it's wonderful curriculum - see other two posts. A big issue for all new schools is furniture design - it is SO hard to find good stuff. But as you see here engagement remains the key; these children were so engaged that their cleverly designed shoe and bag lockers (note the extension of the bottom tier) made a wonderful perch for learning. As i said at the beginning of these three posts the visit raised a few concerns, but was also wonderfully re-affirming: children love to learn and here they do it with relatively little money too.
