At Design Tech High School, we will make students innovation-ready by helping them develop skills that are critical to success in the 21st century - skills like collaboration, creativity, self-management, and communication. At d.tech students develop these skills by building deep content knowledge and learning design thinking. The two principles that guide our educational model are extreme personalization and putting knowledge in action. These are incorporated into the student experience in two ways: (1) by holding every student to the same high standards while allowing each student to move at his or her own pace to achieve those standards, and (2) by teaching students to solve real-world problems using design-thinking. Together, these two approaches provide students with a thinking model they can use throughout their lives to make a positive contribution to a constantly changing world.
