The GSE New School Creation Fellowship is designed for educators who are passionate and committed to designing and founding new schools focused on equity and deeper learning. Funded by the Walton Family Foundation, New School Creation Fellows are supported in leadership development, school design and new school start up. High Tech High schools provide an innovative and disruptive context for fellows to reimagine what is possible for K-12 education, and are intended to serve as sources for inspiration, not replication.The New School Creation Fellowship is offered as a one-year, full-time program with an embedded residency in one of the 16 HTH schools culminating in an M.Ed. in Educational Leadership, or as a two-year, hybrid, online program with extended residencies in San Diego.
