High Tech Elementary Mesa Logo

Welcome to HTeM!

HTe Mesa is located at
5331 Mt. Alifan Drive, Bldg 200, San Diego, CA 92111

 

High Tech High will be opening HTe Mesa, in August 2019 beginning with kindergarten, 1st grade, and 2nd grade.

High Tech Elementary Mesa is a project based learning community established along the design principles of equity, personalization, authentic work and collaboration. Every member of our community is a learner and together we collectively marvel at and study the world around us. We believe that to teach someone is to care for them, to take the time to see who they really are, and to guide them in line with that knowledge. Teaching and learning at Mesa are pivoted on self actualization. We aim to create an environment where our young ones develop positive identities in relation to the world around them and where teachers and other education practitioners feel empowered and equipped to provide optimal support for our growing learners. Given that we at Elementary Mesa cater to the youngest members of our High Tech High collective, we are committed to providing this segment of our population with a solid foundation in reading and writing, as well as a firm sense of the mathematics, science and artistic concepts that are integrated in our projects. We are proud to emphasize, again and again, that at High Tech Elementary Mesa, each child will emerge as a serious reader, writer, thinker, and problem solver.

 

About the Founding Director, Monique Knight:

Prior to joining the High Tech High community, Monique taught in New York City public schools for seven years, served as an academic director, and worked as a literacy specialist for ten years at Columbia University’s Reading and Writing Project. In these varied roles, she had the privilege of supporting students, teachers, and administrators across the United States and internationally. Monique is thrilled to bring these experiences to the Clairemont community and looks forward to learning and growing with our Mesa families.
