Cooperative Innovative High School is a unique opportunity for students who are ready for the challenge of a non-traditional model in that they will need to learn time management, study skills, and independent learning at a faster rate than their peers at the traditional schools.  It's different from traditional high school.  Students must be able to follow rules as they have boundaries and expectations but this model allows for more freedom as we are on a college campus. Students are expected to participate in rigorous discussions (some adult topics at times), ask questions, use technology to the fullest, and challenge themselves academically at both the high school and college level. Again, students must have a good work ethic and support from home, no matter their academic level. Students are responsible for the shape and scope of their education, working with college advisors and the high school counselor.  Their schedules are very individualized and they may not be in classes with their peers.
