Croton-Harmon High School prides itself on future-focused learning as well as personalization for each of our students. Our high school has a history of being on the cutting edge of education dating back to its history as a member of the Coalition of Essential Schools. This history remains a part of us in our commitment to continually looking towards the future and how we can transform learning for all of our students. We explore and embrace concepts such as transdisciplinary learning, problem-based units of study, interdisciplinary courses and teaming, and community-based internships. We are proud of our personalized approach to learning that is evidenced through our extensive course offerings and our yearly addition of new courses, such as our most recent Heritage Spanish Speakers course. We provide individualized support through our flexible support program, a hallmark of how we ensure that all students can thrive at CHHS. This program is flexible in that it allows students with medical and social emotional needs to have dedicated space and staff to support them in their classes and meet their evolving needs. As a part of a future-focused district, CHHS is continually researching and developing approaches to teaching and learning and building in structures to support the work, such as our pedagogical coaching model, that allow our faculty and students to take risks in their learning, use their authentic voices and develop passions.
