To our community, we’re a group of students who build robots. To our neighboring schools, we’re the kids with the crazy cow mascot. To our teachers, we’re the ones that work late into the night. When asked why we put so much time and effort into robotics, our answer is simple: FIRST is more than robots and competitions. It’s about learning valuable life skills and making connections with other people and groups. It’s about discovering a newfound passion in STEM and preaching about its importance. And more than building a robot, it’s about building a team of leaders who want to make a difference.
Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.Harriet Tubman

High Tech High began in 2000 as a single charter high school launched by a coalition of San Diego business leaders and educators. It has evolved into a school development organization with a growing portfolio of innovative charter schools spanning grades K-12. HTH combats the twin problems of student disengagement and low academic achievement by creating personalized, project-based learning environments where all students are known well and challenged to meet high expectations. HTH schools attempt to show how education can be redesigned to ensure that all students graduate well prepared for college, work, and citizenship.
