In Step with Winston at nex+Gen Academy, Lowell, Bandelier, and the Superintendent's Student Advisory Council
We recently celebrated the grand opening of nex+Gen Academy’s brand new building located behind Del Norte High. For the first few weeks of school, students attended classes in portables until they were able to move into their state-of-the art facility on Oct. 4.
Nex+Gen, a magnet high school, is built on the model of the national New Tech High Schools, which includes 62 schools in 14 states. Nex+Gen is the first New Tech high school in New Mexico, and the first in the nation designed and built from the ground up to accommodate project-based learning. All other such schools are located in existing buildings that were renovated or retrofitted.
