Our goals at Next Charter School are to:
● Ensure you earn a NH high school diploma.
● Help you initiate a post-secondary learning experience—whether it be college, vocational training, or the military.
The point is you will have a plan regarding what comes Next!
At Next Charter School, you will be a part of the following ideas:
Competency -- At every opportunity, you will be assessed on what you know and can do. Your achievement will not be determined by components of effort, behavior, attendance, preparation, or time-oriented deadlines. Instead, your achievement will be measured in degrees of proficiency toward mastery of competencies over time.
Learning is a Social Act -- Next will emphasize and promote the idea that authentic learning is best realized within a social dynamic. To this end, individual classrooms and the larger school itself will be community-based, in that both you and your fellow students and staff will have distinct contributions to make with regard to collective learning.
Process and Inquiry -- Traditional approaches to learning emphasize answers. Next will emphasize questions. Your work as a student at Next will be driven by important, real-world problems and questions.
Flexibility -- Next values the unique needs and offerings embodied within each student and staff member. Therefore, Next refuses to adopt a “one size fits all” approach to learning. If learning is to be successful, then it must be, first and foremost, connected to the interest of the learner—You!
