What would a high school look like if you could design it from a clean sheet – literally? As part of the Super School Project, XQ created a three-phase design process to turn ordinary school development on its head. By inviting teams to begin with understanding their students and the world they will enter after high school, hundreds of teams answered the call to action, dreamed big and sketched out ambitious designs to rethink high school. During this Deep Dive, diverse teams of participants will take on the XQ challenge to design and reimagine school!

Come with a team or form one with other participants to experience major breakthroughs and leaps of insight that will define an innovative school and pave the direction for continuous school improvement and success. Each table team will be supported by XQ School designers and provided with XQ Super School Design Kits that include inspiration posters, a how-to guide, large planning worksheets, and packets of books including youth voice cards to stimulate a spirit of innovation and creativity, grounded from the perspective of diverse communities across the nation.

Participants will leave the session ready to share their story of an innovative school concept with a mission, vision, and core teaching and learning experiences that are rethinking traditional systems of time, technology, space, financial resources, and roles.

I enjoy food so much that I like to say that I travel the country by restaurant. I love history, which is a good thing considering I teach it. I am also a huge fan of weight training and other ways of pushing the limits of the human body.
