The mission of the High School of the Future is to provide a stimulating 21st Century curriculum through learning that is continuous, relevant and adaptive and will prepare graduates for the global marketplace.
Learning is Continuous: Learners are able to learn anytime and anywhere. No longer is learning con ned to a classroom. Digital tools will enable learners to engage in their local and global communities anytime.
Learning is Relevant: Learners identify and solve problems that matter now. No longer is the real world segregated from the classroom. Our learners engage in rich learning experiences that develop their agencies to change the world.
Learning is Adaptive: Learners manage their own learning. No longer is one form of engagement mandated. With 21st century competencies and individual learning plans, learners discover how to use their skills to shape the future.

This is the average daily attendance at the school – on average, what percent of all the students enrolled at the school are in attendance. We don’t know why students may not be attending the school, but if this is a low number it is likely that teachers may have to spend more time reviewing material that absent students miss, making it harder to move forward in a class.
