The School-to-Work initiative is a national movement to link school and work giving students the skills and knowledge to move easily from education into the work force. Curricula include industry based skill standards that will help insure that our graduating students achieve business and industry’s expectations. Integrating the curriculum and providing work-based learning help students become lifelong learners by understanding the correlation of ALL subject areas with real work or life situations.
School-to-work programs promote good high school education leading to good jobs and/or a college education, resulting in a productive and satisfying life. Students enrolled at Northeast Metro Tech High School receive the benefits of a strong school-to-work program and are ensured a meaningful work experience. Whether this involved job shadowing, cooperative education, internships or projects, the students are introduced to the realities of the work world. Whether choosing to go on to further their education or to move directly into employment, Northeast students are focused and prepared to meet the demands of an adult venture.
