The Design Tech Model

Design Tech High School’s mission is to develop students who believe the world can be a better place, and that they can be the ones to make it happen. The model is guided by two powerful principles—extreme personalization and putting knowledge into action. students learn to solve real-world problems using a design thinking approach that they can use throughout their lives to make positive contributions to a constantly changing world.

Design Tech is a unique high school, founded on principles we believe in—innovation, creativity, and problem-solving—and our support of is a fulfillment of Larry’s vision. We couldn’t be more excited to build a home for on our campus and to see the positive impact it will undoubtedly have on students, teachers, Oracle employees, the local community, and the world.”
