Secondary Education

We address the three major challenges in secondary education with student-directed learning, skills-forward curriculum, and effective technology.

Worldwide, students learn passively, memorize content, and sit through test after test without benefit to them. This approach may have worked in the past, but it fails most young people today in their effort to achieve a sustainable, purposeful life and career.

Quest Forward Learning is a comprehensive program that enables school leaders to transform their schools for effective, skills-oriented learning, feedback-driven assessment, and better performance management.

To succeed in a rapidly changing world, teenagers today need more than rigorous academics: they need habits and skills for life-long learning, for problem solving and innovation, for resilient collaboration, and more.

Quest Forward Learning powers high schools with a project-based high school curriculum, feedback-driven assessment system, and a student-directed approach to teaching and learning.

With Quest Forward Learning, school leaders can transform their schools in a year, and parents to offer their children a best-fit path through high school into a sustainable life and career.
