Whole School Transformation for Every Child
New Tech Network schools succeed by addressing four focus areas: college and career outcomes, purposeful assessment, supportive and inclusive culture, and meaningful and equitable instruction.
Successful students should leave school with the skills and abilities to thrive in the workforce – whether they enter the workforce immediately, choose to attend college, or work while continuing their education.
Higher academic and business community are demanding different skills from employees and college students. Businesses are no longer aligned with the way traditional school is taught.
A collaborative, whole school culture is critical to meaningful, sustainable change.

Member campuses of New Tech Network are eligible for $50 per student allotment, in grades 7-12, for engaging in school-wide project-based learning with an emphasis on college and career ready outcomes.

School Leaders Say...
To prepare students for the future, they need to develop problem-solving and critical thinking skills, and learn how to find and apply content knowledge, not just memorize it. To tackle this challenge educators cannot work alone. New Tech Network is just that, a Network, where a group of diverse, driven educators work together to pioneer learning for the future.
