What is Your Ideal School?
What if school inspired and engaged? What if classes offered relevant learning experiences? What if students could develop the skills most valued by employers? Transformed schools exist today.
At New Tech Network, students are problem solvers and creators. They learn to collaborate and communicate. Through challenging, authentic projects, they learn to adapt and engage in the world around them.
New Tech Network (NTN) is a leading design partner for comprehensive school change. NTN works closely with districts and schools to create innovative learning environments. Through a proven school model, a project-based learning platform, and powerful professional development we coach schools toward lasting change and ongoing improvement.
The New Tech Network Story
In the mid-1990’s, a group of Napa entrepreneurs observed that graduates of the region’s high schools were woefully underprepared for the contemporary workplace. With a clear vision, financial resources and in cooperation with Napa Valley Unified School District, these visionaries opened New Technology High School, as a public district school, in 1996. By providing 1-to-1 technology access, creating a strong culture of empowerment, and using project-based learning instruction, this new school focused on preparing students academically, and with essential skills, by helping them learn to collaborate, innovate, and communicate ideas to solve complex problems.
Transforming Teaching and Learning
Successful schools engage and empower students. They connect educators and students with their communities. They provide students with paths to think critically, manage their own learning, collaborate and communicate effectively.
For more than 15 years, New Tech Network (NTN) has helped schools and districts transform teaching and learning. We are a network that reconnects educators to their purpose – to help students develop the skills they will need for college, career and life.
