Dual School had a successful pilot program last fall, with 14 high-school students from public, charter and private schools in Delaware and a project-based curriculum that’s gotten attention from founding teachers from of High Tech High in San Diego, Most Likely to Succeed producer Ted Dintersmith and Dr. Ivor Hickey, of the U.K.-based Leonardo Effect, among others.

Now it’s time for the hard launch.

Thirty-two Delaware high-schoolers have committed to a 10-week Dual School session this spring, which will have three parallel cohorts: two meeting at 1313 Innovation, and a third at Willliam Penn High School’s Innovation Center. The WPHS cohort will be made up of its own students, while the two 1313 cohorts will be made up of students from different public, charter and private schools.


The spring cohort of Dual School kicked off with a visit from Brian Delgado and Andrew Lerario from High Tech High. They guided students through the experience of a project-based creative representation of their ideas.

A few of the projects students will be perusing this semester include access to STEM education, an app to learn languages, renewable energy technology, a video game to address depression and suicide, and academic integration for immigrants. Other areas include gender and racial issues, environmental issues, local revitalization and bullying.
