    About New Tech High School

    New Tech High School is a rigorous and innovative interdisciplinary (STEM) high school in which students engage in collaborative real-world investigations (Project Based/ Problem Based Learning) designed to build strong working relationships with teachers, fellow students, and community partners.

    Established in 2007, New Tech is designed to offer an alternative to the traditional high school experience and provide students with a uniquely different learning environment enriched with a one-to-one computer-to-student ratio. Here at New Tech High School, we are dedicated to having our students understand how educational content relates to real-world experiences. We do so by making sure that students have access to the technologies they will encounter in higher education and the workplace, and by teaching them the 21st-century skills as laid out by the Partnership for 21st Century Skills.

    Our Partners in Innovative Education are the New Tech Network of Napa, California.  In 2009, New Tech High School was named a Demonstration Site for the New Tech Network and in 2010 began serving as a Learning Lab Initiative (LLI) School with North Carolina New Schools.  As a demonstration site for the New Tech Network and an LLI school, we are able to showcase the teaching and learning that ensures all students graduate ready for college, careers, and life.
