XQ Super School Resources


The XQ Super School Project has complied a  a variety of valuable multi-media resources to help high schools through the daunting challenge of redesign. We also encourage your to visit their website to explore more about this exciting program.

The XQ Super School Project began in 2015 because they believed our nation’s young people could not wait any longer for our educational system to change. America’s public high school system was founded to ensure that all high school students have access to a free, high quality education that prepares them for college, career, and life. With that mission, XQ launched a competition inviting America to reimagine high school. People across the country self-assembled into teams and started a movement to transform high school education in their areas.
