Sanborn Regional High School was chosen as the finalist for New Hampshire. The school has a learning model in place that personalizes learning by emphasizing each student’s strengths, focusing on mastery of content and competencies, and encouraging students to take ownership of their learning. The school is entering its second year in the PACE pilot program, which replaces some standardized tests with locally developed, competency-based assessments, and has been a model for educational innovations across the state and country.
