Schools do not own learning. Students own learning.
Learning is personal and individual.
Everyone wants to learn. Everyone, therefore, is a learner.
Students learn to drive by driving. Let’s measure how well they drive rather than how well they practice driving.
The measure of achievement is what students do next in their adult lives.
Teachers are mentors, coaches, guides, and facilitators.
Learning happens anywhere and everywhere.
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.
