High School Redesign

J. T. Foster is a High School Redesign site. High School Redesign is grounded in nine foundational principles:

  • Mastery Learning
  • Rigorous and Relevant Curriculum
  • Personalization
  • Flexible Learning Environments
  • Educator Roles and Professional Development
  • Meaningful Relationships
  • Home and Community Involvement
  • Assessment
  • Welcoming, Caring, Respectful and Safe Learning Environment

These foundational principles are interconnected. While different schools may choose to focus on one or two principles in any given year, it is likely that they will touch on other principles as well.
