For students at New Tech High School, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary, their school year started Monday with a three-day project intended to help them appreciate diversity and become culturally responsive citizens.

“By examining cultural responsiveness to start the year, our students will not only be reflecting on their own identity, but why it matters to learn from and relate respectfully to other cultures,” said Principal Riley Johnson.

Johnson hopes the project will enable his students to “tackle problems in a way that celebrates differences and sustains growing a community together with all walks of life.”
