What makes New Tech different?

TEACHING THAT ENGAGES: Project-Based Learning

In project-based learning classrooms, students become problem solvers.


By making learning relevant and creating a collaborative learning culture, students become connected to, engaged with, and challenged by their school, their teachers, and their peers.


In a technology-rich environment, teachers and students create, communicate, access information, and experience self-directed learning.

OUTCOMES THAT MATTER: College and Career Readiness

New Tech Network learning outcomes measure collaboration, written and oral communication, and the development of students’ responsibility for their own learning - called agency.

Our Vision:

Each student can achieve his or her highest potential and persevere in a changing world.
