Personalized Learning

Personalized learning is a unique educational delivery model. Students must be disciplined and motivated. Parents/guardians must actively review, support, and monitor student progress to facilitate individual student success and assist in ensuring compliance with program rules. Many students need extra assistance in time management to be successful in school. Personalized learning allows a student great autonomy and can afford them the opportunity to pursue employment, internships, college courses, and other outside interests.

Coast Redwood High School curriculum is aligned to the Common Core Standards. Our students’ academic success may include dual-enrollment at Cabrillo College and successful matriculation to a community college, university, or technical school. However, it is very important to bear in mind that for some students, the breadth and scope of knowledge gained at Coast Redwood High School are not as comprehensive as it would be in a typical seat-based classroom because Coast Redwood High School students have reduced interaction with teachers and peers.

Therefore, as with any program, there are both pros and cons to studying at Coast Redwood High School. Coast Redwood is a wonderful program for many students and offers great opportunities for success, but the transition from a comprehensive classroom to Coast Redwood can be very challenging for both the student and the parent/guardian as it is for students transitioning from a Coast Redwood to a comprehensive school setting.

Coast Redwood offers a balanced academic program that is developmentally appropriate and prepares students to become life-long learners. With the understanding that children learn best by doing, it builds student independence by providing opportunities and challenges that develop initiative and discipline, preparing students for college and beyond.

While our program is highly successful, our definition of success is not limited to where our graduates go to college, but rather how prepared our graduates are to achieve their goals and contribute to the world as young adults.
