This year we had our first seniors take the opportunity to leave school during quarter 4 to participate in an internship. Each opportunity gave our students more insight into an area of interest and also helped them to make decisions about their future choices in college. Placements included:
An Interior Designer
A Ceramics Shop
An Elementary School
Managing horses at the Polo Grounds
A Beauty and Esthetician shop
Each student had to make a display of their experiences and present to their peers and adults in the front lobby today. They also had to follow a specific protocol of check-ins and write a reflective paper about their experience. Each of the students involved enjoyed the internship and felt that they learned so much more about the field they chose by participating.
