CLARKSVILLE, IN (WAVE) - A unique high school is coming to Indiana.
The Clarksville Board of School Trustees voted Tuesday to bring in New Tech Network, which features a whole new approach to learning.
The non-profit organization has schools across the country and uses projects to teach students instead of a traditional curriculum.
Superintendent Kim Knott said their style of teach can vary from students looking at flooding problems to working algorithms that help coaches coach. She said the students also work in teams on these real life problems, "Students own the school. And what I mean by that is that they set the ground rules, they set the expectations, they set the behavioral norms that they're going to operate by."
Clarksville Community Schools will pay New Tech $463,000 over a five year period for the partnership.
The group currently operates a school in Scottsburg.
