Open High School of Utah

As the first high school to use, write and share open source curriculum, Open High School is an online public charter school designed to meet the needs of 21st century learners. As they move towards a completely open source model, they are committed to sharing all the curriculum they develop. Using open resources makes it easy to modify curriculum and customize delivery. According to Mike Esser at, "Technology rules at Open High where their approach to learning embraces the idea that teaching shouldn't be as static as the textbooks on which it's based. Shattering traditional methods, the Open High School of Utah curriculum is built from open educational resources. These resources are the foundation for their content and are aligned with Utah state standards to ensure the highest quality educational experience. The teachers enhance with screencasts, interactive components, and engaging activities to create high quality curricula for their students."
