We Built a School: The Story of Design Tech High School
Seventeen years ago, Oracle Executive Chairman and CIO, Larry Ellison, dreamed of having a school at Oracle where students could learn not what to think, but how to think. In 2018, that vision became a reality when Oracle completed construction of a new home for Design Tech High School (d.tech) on its headquarters campus.
Design Tech High School (d.tech) is a pioneering California public charter high school. d.tech’s mission is to develop students who believe the world can be a better place, and that they can be the ones to make it happen. The d.tech model is guided by two powerful principles—extreme personalization and putting knowledge into action. d.tech students learn to solve real-world problems using a design thinking approach that they can use throughout their lives to make positive contributions to a constantly changing world.
Oracle’s relationship with d.tech began in 2014 through the Oracle Education Foundation, and quickly grew and deepened into the company and d.tech co-designing a purpose-built facility for the school, which was completed in November 2017 and has been occupied by d.tech since January 2018. Hear from the team responsible for the joint project to design and build d.tech – leaders who were all, unintentionally, women. Learn how the team took “See It, Be It” from vision to execution, along with lessons learned.
