What advantages come with breaking up strict grade levels in high school?
Multiage classrooms are not common in public elementary schools, but when they exist they aren't a huge surprise. Montessori schools have celebrated the benefits of mixed age groups for decades, but the practice hasn't often spread to high school. But several schools are developing a high school experience that isn't tied to grade level. Some of the positives include extra time for students who enter high school behind to catch up, stronger relationships with teachers who have students for two years, and new mentoring and collaboration roles for the older students in a group.
