North Carolina New Schools can help make that happen by working with educators to create schools and districts where students excel.
What We Do
When your child’s school or district partners with NC New Schools, you can expect a totally new approach in the classroom. We coach educators to shift the classroom focus from teacher to student; from teaching to learning. Using team-based, project-based and active learning, our coaches help teachers and principals engage and motivate students to succeed. And we work with principals and district leaders to create collaborative school environments focused on teaching, leading and learning. Our methods stress rigor, relevance and relationships and how these principles can be applied to ensure that every student is prepared for college, careers and life in the 21st century.
How We Do It
Students who attend schools that partner with NC New Schools can expect to:
- Benefit from increased collaboration among teachers, principals and district leaders aimed at better addressing each student’s unique needs and helping students build critical thinking, problem solving, teamwork and communication skills
- Be immersed in an environment where every student is held to challenging standards, becomes engaged in meaningful learning and is connected to college coursework — no matter what their plans for the future may be
- Take advantage of hands-on, work-based learning opportunities through local businesses, community organizations and institutions of higher education
