New School, Innovative Curriculum Meant to Raise Clarksville Students' Test Scores

Can a brand new school and innovative curriculum really raise test scores in Clarksville? School leaders seem to think so and now they're putting your tax dollars behind it.

Clarksville Community Schools just passed plans for New Tech, a new curriculum, and a new high school. Clarksville Community School Corporation Superintendent Kim Knott explains, "It's a project-based learning technology-driven environment where students create the learning experience and teachers are facilitators of that using the World Wide Web."

In a New Tech school, there are no classroom walls. Subjects such as chemistry and algebra are taught in group clusters, with students solving real-world situations.
