We Can #Rethink High School

We are getting closer to our final submission for the XQ Super School Redesign Project. Last week we held two community roundtable forums. Partnering with community and businesses to provide real world, hands on experience continued to be woven through each statement. Each adult in the room shared his/her experience with high school. Despite none of us attending the same school or even knowing one another in high school, our experiences were very similar. Almost everyone commented on the social pulls and demands on "fitting" in.  It was clear that if we could have had a more engaging high school it would have benefited all of us.

Our students deserve better. Our students are asking for more. Even without the $10 million from the XQ Super School project we can still #rethink our approaches and provide a much more engaging and meaningful high school experience for our students.

Listen to OUR students in this video and think about how YOU can help us #rethink high school.

In order to complete our final phase submission I welcome any comments, ideas, suggestions at the end of this post. 

Our ONE goal: To graduate every Fairfield High Student and to ensure that they leave FHS college and career ready!!! 
Inspire, Engage, Excite, Lead, Foster, Create, Empower!!

Many more great things are in store for Fairfield High!

Continue to be innovative, creative, and a model of excellence!
