|The mission of the HTH Graduate School of Education is to prepare reflective practitioner leaders to work with colleagues and communities to develop innovative, authentic, and rigorous learning environments. This mission parallels that of the High Tech High K-12 schools: to provide all students with an extraordinary project-based education and to graduate students who will succeed in post-secondary education and be thoughtful, engaged citizens. The HTH GSE opened in September 2007 at the High Tech High village of schools in San Diego, California.|
School Leadership and Teacher Leadership M.Ed Programs
The HTH GSE offers two Master's of Education degree (M.Ed.) programs: School Leadership, for experienced educators who wish to or currently lead a small, innovative school, and Teacher Leadership, for experienced teachers who aspire to deepen their practice and broaden their leadership capacity at their school. Both programs are open to educators within and beyond our network of HTH schools and can be completed as a 2 year part-time or 1 year residency program.
Attend our Residencies and Institutes, focused on topics ranging from project-based learning to exhibitions of student work to leadership for school change, or have HTH faculty lead Workshops at your school. Engage in conversations about teaching, learning, and leadership with educators from around the world through online and face-to-face Collegial Conversations on the second Saturday of every month. Participate in discussions with educational innovators and reformers through our UnBoxed Speaker Series, and peruse musings on educational practice and policy in UnBoxed, the Journal of Adult Learning in Schools.
Leading Schools Program
A one-year hybrid program, blending on-line learning and face-to-face collaboration, designed to transform schools by serving as a "change incubator" for teams of educators engaged in school reform. This program is available to both national and international educators.
Teacher Credentialing Program
High Tech High was the first charter school to be authorized by the state of California to fully credential teachers. High Tech High offers Preliminary and Clear professional credentials through its CTC approved District Intern and Induction Programs. HTH offers three types of Intern and Clear teaching credentials: Single-Subject, Multiple Subjects and Educational Specialist. HTH is authorized for single subject credentials in Math, Science, English, Social Science, Spanish, Mandarin, Physical Education, and Art. All program participants must be employed as the teacher of record at a HTH or HTH-affiliated school. These unique programs prepare teachers in a project based K-12 setting.
