Let me tell you about our school
Albany Senior High School (ASHS) opened on February 3 2009 with 242 year 11 students. It's NZ's first state-funded senior high school and has some rather cool features. As you may have seen, we're an open-source school, but we also have flexible learning communities (no shoebox classrooms here), and a curriculum for the 21st century that includes student-directed, project-based learning and dedicated tutorial time. Our permanent campus site is a flurry of activity as our building (below) is constructed, ready for us to move into in February 2009.
