Mavericks High Schools were established to provide an educational choice to students who have dropped out of school or may be in danger of dropping out. Using 21st Century technology and a focus on individualized attention, Mavericks High Schools offer students, who are challenged by the traditional approach to learning, the opportunity to earn a state-recognized high school diploma. This high-tech high provides students, ages 15-21, a strong research-based curriculum and support for pursuing continuing education or a suitable vocation. Our state's low graduation rates are unacceptable. Mavericks Highs bring creative solutions to this critical issue through high-quality, personalized education. Students are not only guided to master required skills, they are given the support they need to succeed in the future. Schedules are flexible and the student-to-teacher ratio is low. The self-paced curriculum allows students to progress according to their individual abilities and experience. College dual enrollment is available, as are opportunities to gain hands-on work experience while in high school. Mavericks High, along with Mavericks in Education, is dedicated to designing, developing and delivering out-of-the-box, innovative educational solutions that get results. Our goal is to work in support and partnership of our public and private school system by focusing intently upon the at-risk and dropout student challenge. Our initiatives are focused upon saving thousands of students each year, big solutions to big problems. Mavericks High passionately believes that every student deserves a free, publicly funded education. We recognize that the health of our communities is absolutely dependant upon the academic standing of every member along with their capacity and desire to make a contribution.
