Developed by a coalition of San Diego civic leaders and educators, High Tech High opened in September 2000 as a small public charter school with plans to serve approximately 450 students. HTH has evolved into an integrated network of fourteen charter schools serving approximately 5,350 students in grades K-12 across four campuses. High Tech High is guided by four connected design principles—equity, personalization, authentic work, and collaborative design—that set aspirational goals and create a foundation for understanding our approach.
In keeping with these design principles, HTH high schools have a no-cut policy and every student has the ability to join and participate with our athletic teams. The realities of school budgetary constraints continue to be our greatest obstacle in HTH Athletics. There are a significant number of athletic expenses that cannot be met by our schools. Sadly, our cross country program is not funded by any source within the school district or any other means. It is by-and-large funded by the donations of our families, friends, supporters, and fundraising efforts that we are able to support.
Without your generous contributions, we would not be in a position to offer or grow our various program offerings, which carries additional importance because our schools do not offer physical education classes during school hours. We would deeply appreciate a donation in support of our cross country program.
Such contributions would go toward covering the expenses of race entry fees, jerseys, sneakers, CIF fees, transportation, and other fees and costs related to running.
Please help us continue to provide a robust sports program for our student-athletes, and donate today if you can. You can keep up with us on Instagram (@hth_xc) and on Strava (https://www.strava.com/clubs/461111). We truly thank you for your support and donations!
