As the newest middle school in the HTH family, High Tech Middle Chula Vista is proud to serve our community and offer a rigorous, project-based approach to learning. At HTMCV, our curriculum is based on the HTH design principles of common intellectual mission, adult world connection, and personalization. Teachers, as curriculum designers, strive to create innovative project-based learning experiences that will engage our diverse group of students in complex, adult-world projects through which they will develop and apply skills and knowledge. Our classrooms are fully inclusive, as we want to help all students to reach their potential.

All of our students participate in a yearly Exhibition Night, where their work is on display for the community, and they conduct Presentations of Learning at the end of each semester to demonstrate their understanding and growth. Each student also has a designated faculty advisor who offers academic, emotional, and social support through the three-year middle school journey. Students in all grades are on teaching teams which include Humanities and Integrated Math/Science for the full school year, and take semester-long exploratory classes in Art, Theatre, and Engineering & Design.

Our building, which we share with High Tech Elementary (HTe), is designed to be a healthy, sustainable, and effective learning environment. The school itself is a learning tool for students, staff, and community members, with demonstration areas and signage to exhibit the benefits of high performance, environmentally-friendly design. Of particular note is the indoor air quality, room acoustics, and daylighting. Our school is one of the most energy efficient in the nation as well, with rooftop solar panels producing over 70% of our energy needs on an annualized basis. We are also proud to boast an edible garden with planting space for every student, and a fruit orchard, each integrated into the curriculum and managed entirely by students.

As our year progresses, we will add student work to our website. Please check back often to see the beautiful work that our students create!
