Opening a New High School
Walker, Karen
Education Partnerships, Inc.
"One size does not fit all," usually refers to differentiation and how students learn. However, it can also be applied to what grade levels should be included in a new high school setting. What is feasible for one school district and its students may not be so for another (Howley, 2002; McEntire, 2005). "The underlying issue is how should we configure educational institutions, not what grade-span configuration is best" (Howley 2002). Nevertheless, the research is clear about the important components that should be considered when establishing a high school campus. This paper presents a list of questions to consider when opening a new high school. (Contains 17 online resources.)
