Napa High is currently in the process of becoming an AVID Demonstration School.  This recognition is a result of multiple years meeting or exceeding the AVID certification standards, as well as making progress toward having explicit Writing, Inquiry, Collaboration, Organization and Reading (WICOR) in classes throughout the school.  Napa High is beginning the Demonstration School Certification in the 2017-2018 School Year.

Napa High School joined the New Tech Network in the Fall of 2015.  The New Tech Network has helped the school transition to a Project/Problem based pedagogical approach.  This has been most evident in the adoption of 5 schoolwide learning outcomes, around which all student grades are based.  These outcomes are: Written Communication, Oral Communication, Collaboration, Knowledge and Thinking and Agency.  The network provides professional development and third point references for continuous  school improvement.
