For the past 100 years, high schools in America haven't changed much. "I like to tell people if Theodore Roosevelt walked into our building he would recognize this as an American high school because not much has changed," laughed Oregon High School Principal, Andrew Nelson. 

Now Oregon High School is working to keep up with the times with its 'Open Program'. It's a new program for Sophomores that puts the student in charge of their own education.

Open Program teacher Aaron Sitze has taught the class for the past three years. Sitze said, "We let kids drive a car when they are 16 but we don't always let them choose their own pacing for math or English."
