SYNERGY: Mineola district creating new model for high school learning

An alternate option to the traditional high school setup is being offered in Mineola. The district spent more than $4 million to buy and renovate an old bank to create SYNERGY, a program allowing students to self-direct their learning and demonstrate mastery of skills necessary to thrive in and beyond high school, district officials said.
