Johanna Echols-Hansen Continuation High School (JEH) is committed to providing high-quality education to a diverse student body. JEH serves students who have been unsuccessful at the comprehensive high school or who need a more flexible schedule for personal reasons. The student population is made up of juniors and seniors who are at least 16 years old. JEH is a member of the Big Picture School network built on the following three premises:
- learning must be based on the interests and goals of each student
- curriculum must be relevant to people and places in the world
- students' abilities must be measured by the authentic quality of their work.
The goals of the school are to move beyond credit recovery and a focus on graduation only but graduating with a focus more on what happens after high school; that learning is interest driven, and students find relevance in their work as the learning is based in real-world matters that pertain to the student and the community. This is achieved through a program centered on building student ownership of learning through the creation of individual Learning Through Interests (LTI) plans promoting the philosophy of one student at a time.
