Student-Centered Learning: Dozier-Libbey Medical High School


"This report, funded by the Nellie Mae Education Foundation, explores student-centered learning practices at Dozier-Libbey Medical High School (DLMHS) in California—a school serving predominately low-income students and students of color.

Within just five years of opening, the school has achieved at levels far exceeding schools with similar student populations. DLMHS is using student-centered, experiential education to make learning relevant. The school is infusing its health care focus across its curriculum through interdisciplinary, project-based instruction that focuses on student mastery. This means students are engaged and are learning critical work-ready skills like collaboration, critical thinking, and communication."
