Capital High

At Capital High, we provide personalized learning in a smaller learning community to support our students’ success. Our students, many of whom have been disengaged in school, are vibrant young men and women who are eager to re-engage in learning that supports their interests and goals. Our teachers design and deliver lessons that support deeper learning. We challenge all students to apply a growth mindset to their present and future goals.

Welcome to Capital High

What Makes Capital High Unique

A safe, inclusive, and supportive community for all our members.

  • Summer Academy for all 9th and 10th-grade students serves as an introduction to get to know our school.
  • Recognizing that students need more than content knowledge to be successful, our teachers ask students to work collaboratively with classmates, to explore problems that do not have a single solution, and to share their ideas through oral and written communications.
  • Small learning community where students are supported through an advisory model to develop core knowledge and skills while exploring their interests and engaging in post-secondary planning.
  • TinkerSpace open to all students.Diverse staff dedicated to meeting the needs of the whole child. Academic skills are taught using a variety of learning modalities including literacy, math, physical education, technology, music and fine arts.
