Souhegan High School proves that consequential and imaginative change from ordinary routines can happen in a suburban school serving middle-class students. There can be no excuses. This book reflects the best thinking in secondary school reform literature and demonstrates how it has been enacted in a real high school. This is an important example of what works.

Informationen zum Titel Standards of Mind and Heart aus der Reihe School Reform, 34 This is the remarkable story of the creation of a new kind of high school that truly aspires to educate all students to high standards. In this volume, Silva (a teacher) and Mackin (a principal) chronicle their experiences as they worked through the many challenges that ultimately resulted in this extraordinarily successful school.

A regional school district was proposed and put before the voters of all three towns in 1988.

Notably, Souhegan's progressive reputation has been chronicled in the book Standards of Mind and Heart: Creating the Good High School by Tony Wagner, Peggy Silvia and Dr. Robert A. Mackin (Teachers College Press, 2002). Based on this history, the school was founded with the mission "Souhegan High School aspires to be a community of learners born of respect, trust and courage. A regional school district was proposed and put before the voters of all three towns in 1988. The proposal was defeated at the Milford School District's special deliberative session.

This is the remarkable story of the creation of a new kind of high school that truly aspires to educate all students to high standards. Believing that a deeply personalized culture can prevent the senseless violence that has invaded many public schools, educators at Souhegan High School in Amherst, New Hampshire, set out to create a safe, caring, and academically rigorous school. In this volume, Silva (a teacher) and Mackin (a principal) chronicle their experiences as they worked through the many challenges that ultimately resulted in this extraordinarily successful school. Featuring their honest reflections and the voices of other participants, this book:

Portrays a real public high school (not a small alternative school) that is successfully implementing most of the reform practices recommended by national reform models. Demonstrates how schools can strike a balance between the need for stricter safety measures and the social and emotional needs of each student, thus avoiding violent outbursts in schools. Details the school’s structure, curriculum, professional culture, and systems of accountability for all students in a heterogeneous, inclusionary setting. Describes the use of teaming, advisory groups, exhibitions, and senior projects. Provides a working model of the “Breaking Ranks” recommendations, including the importance of “personalization” and democracy in education.
  • This a great book on a school who took the current educational thoughts and trends and turned it into a reality! I recommend this book to anyone interested in secondary education!

  • The high school that is the subject of this book was on a creative track, but then lost its way. Faculty understood the underlying principles, but did not have the methods or mastery to make the dream a reality over the long haul. Today the school has experienced serious violence, theft, declining test scores and many of the same challenges as any other troubled high school in America. It makes one wonder if Silva's book is anything more than a feel-good exercise in creative thinking.
