Personalized

Historically, high schools have been places where anonymity reigns. Students are identified by numbers and teachers see upwards of 150 learners in any school day. Not surprisingly, research argues that such impersonal environments discourage student success. Students achieve at higher levels when they are known well by adults at school. As trusting student-adult relationships develop, learning becomes increasingly individualized and students receive the requisite support to achieve at levels not previously attainable.
