The Huntington and San Marino Unified School District have partnered to offer an online “blended” course to high school students starting in the fall. This is the first time The Huntington Library, Art Collections and Botanical Gardens has collaborated with a school to provide a hybrid online course. It includes once-a-week class time in both San Marino High School and a 207-acre research facility. Catherine Allgor, the Huntington’s director of education, said the beta program was Superintendent Alex Cherniss’ brainchild. Cherniss became head of California’s premier school district — according to the Academic Performance Index benchmark — in July. “He wanted to strengthen the humanities at San Marino High School,” Allgor said. “They’re really strong in math and science things, but when you have something like The Huntington in your backyard — which is a leader in the humanities — you certainly want to take advantage of that.”
