Highland Tech High Charter School 4

The philosopy of the school is all about self motivation and leans heavily upon the business world. I agree with this concept, because what are we preparing our children for? really we are preparing them for the 21st century and the age of computing, wireless technology and technology overall. My son has had the opportunity to create his own webpage, learns how to surf the internet for his research, depends on a virtual world to complete his homework (Plato) and (Educate) and we as parents get involved as well. We had to learn the programs outlined above to maintain an understanding of what our son needs to complete at school to be termed proficient in his learning plan. Our son's after school 'strategy game club' has been instrumental in teaching him the world of online games and it has been a pleasure listening and observing a bunch of boys online playing the same strategic game.

The quality of the academic program is high, but based on self motivation. Needs more in the way of music, sports but has after school clubs that are very interesting. The schools stakeholder meetings (parents, staff and students) are well attended but as with any program more is needed.
