CCE Partners with Manchester School District for West High School 

The Center for Collaborative Education is teaming up with the Boys and Girls Club of Manchester and Manchester School District in New Hampshire for a full redesign of West High School, thanks to a generous grant from the Barr Foundation.  

The redesign will give students new opportunities to learn outside of school through internships and other opportunities within their communities, while personalized learning plans within the classroom will provide students a tailored learning experience to meet their individual needs. The restructuring is expected to be complete in 2019.
