Community-based learning provides our students the opportunity to gain real world career experience while in high school. Cooperative education, as it is called, is available to all juniors and seniors and places them in local businesses working with a supervisor on a job site. Opportunities for internships during the school day exist with many local businesses. Unlike an after-school job, students receive high school credit for the experience. Participating students develop job-related skills and expand their understanding of careers in their field of choice, all while establishing valuable work experience.
