"Students from all backgrounds - low academic students, high academic students, special education, English language learners, even newcomers that speak no English at all - the support systems that are built in are so accessible that even someone who is a first grade reader can find success."
“These work-based and problem-solving units will give students an opportunity to hone in on their interests and skills prior to entering high school so that they know which CTE Courses and careers they are most interested in while also preparing them for the high school CTE curriculum. Our students will be highly employable after going through the CTE track in our secondary schools.”
"They're retaining all the information because they're doing something with their hands. The students are taking blood, ankle wraps, looking at images of the x-rays. They really get a lot out of it and they realize what careers they like and what they don't like."
