Mountain Heights Academy, located in West Jordan, Utah, is the 2017 Student Voices Award winner. SETDA recognized the school for leveraging technology to improve educational experiences dramatically with personalized, student-centered learning. Mountain Heights is the first secondary school in the world to develop its own curriculum as OER content. World-class teachers create courses, invite students to participate in the design process, teach the courses, and release the content to benefit students across the globe.
SETDA also awarded Mountain Heights Academy the Elsie Brumback Scholarship, which supports sending a delegation of students and staff to present during the Education Forum at the annual SETDA Leadership Summit in October.
Three other finalists were selected from a large number of innovative programs across the country, including Wilder (ID) School District #133, Public Schools of Calumet, Laurium, and Keweenaw (MI), and Sheridan County (WY) School District #2.
