Schools do not own learning. Students own learning.
Everyone wants to learn. Everyone, therefore, is a learner.
Teachers are mentors, coaches, guides, and facilitators.
Learning is personal and individual.
Students learn to drive by driving. Let’s measure how well they drive rather than how well they practice driving.
Learning happens anywhere and everywhere.
The measure of achievement is what students do next in their adult lives.
The mission of Next Charter School is to meet the needs of students not fully served within a traditional high school educational program and to employ a system of instructional and assessment practices that values competency, inquiry, flexibility, and the social nature of learning so that all students will graduate and initiate post-secondary learning options.

Next is located inside Gilbert H. Hood Middle School. Due to our partnership with the Derry Cooperative School District, we are able to lease space within the middle school building.
