COVID-19 Information Parent and Student Resources, Meal Services, and Distance Learning Information

Dear High Tech High Families,

In a previous email we outlined HTH's plan for implementing distance learning in the event we did not reopen schools on April 7th.   We have officially decided that we follow suit and will not return for in person instruction on April 7th.

When HTH teachers return on April 6th, they will spend that week designing and piloting plans for distance learning.  We will be reaching out for your thoughts and feedback as we do this work.

We will roll out our approach to distance learning the week of April 13th and you will receive detailed information from your child’s teachers about what to expect going forward.  We are asking teachers to plan for their first distance learning module from April 13th - May 8th. Our hope is that by that time, we may be able to return to school, but if that is not the case, we will begin a second module that will run until the end of the year.

Estimadas HTH familias,

En un correo electrónico anterior, describimos el plan de HTH para implementar el aprendizaje a distancia en caso de que no volviéramos a abrir las escuelas el 7 de abril. Hemos decidido oficialmente que hacemos lo mismo y no volveremos para recibir instrucción en persona el 7 de abril.

Cuando los maestros de HTH regresan el 6 de abril, pasarán esa semana diseñando y poniendo a prueba planes para el aprendizaje a distancia. Nos pondremos en contacto para solicitar sus pensamientos y comentarios mientras hacemos este trabajo.

Implementaremos nuestro enfoque de la educación a distancia la semana del 13 de abril y su familia recibirá información detallada de los maestros de su hijo/a sobre qué esperar en el futuro. Estamos pidiendo a los maestros que planifiquen su primer módulo de aprendizaje a distancia para el 13 de abril al 8 de mayo. Nuestra esperanza es que para ese momento, podamos regresar a la escuela, pero si ese no es el caso, comenzaremos un segundo módulo que se ejecutará hasta el final del año escolar.

Important Information —


High Tech Middle Chula Vista LogoWelcome to HTMCV!

High Tech Middle Chula Vista is located at:
1949 Discovery Falls Drive, Chula Vista, CA 91915 •  Accessibility Map

 

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 equity, personalization, authentic work, and collaborative design. 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!
