• The learning model found within our program of studies is centered on the integration of rigorous academics and career technical learning to promote the skill set necessary for career advancement and longevity in the 21st century. Knowledge gained in mathematics, language arts, science, and social studies is applied to real-world problem-solving within vocational-technical programs. The result is our students recognize the relevance of their education, are enthused about their high school experience, and view learning not as a chore but as a privilege. 

    In partnership with local colleges, businesses, and economic development agencies, the system works toward enhancing the economic, social, and historic strengths of the region while promoting opportunities for students and creating solutions for employers. The school has an enviable benchmark of 100% placement of graduates with career or educational paths suited to their talents and ambitions and addresses the needs of business and industry.
