STUDENT SUCCESS STORY: PARKER SWANSON
THE TIMES RECORD
PARKER SWANSON knew there was an alternative course: Region 10 Technical High School in Brunswick, which has more than 200 students from surrounding communities.
But that wasn’t the place for college-bound teens, he was informed.
But when the Bowdoin resident brought his parents to an open house at Region 10, their perception of technical education was turned on its head. Swanson has thrived there the past three years, stimulated by a hands-on method of learning that stands to serve him well in the years ahead.
“The teachers at Region 10 are invested in your success and work with you to make sure you do your very best.
The environment is more than welcoming…”
– Reagan Davis, Student
Region 10 Technical High School
The Mission of Region 10 Technical High School is to enrich the unique potential of each learner by enabling students to acquire knowledge, skills, and dispositions necessary for further education or for gainful employment. These goals will be achieved through education focused on individual and community needs, demonstration of responsible citizenship and professionalism, and acquisition of career and technical skills that meet both state and national standards.
Our Staff is dedicated to exploring students’ potential, discovering their innate talents and bringing these talents to light. All our instructors are highly experienced and passionate about their subject area and have chosen to teach in order to ignite that passion in students. Their dedication is evident in the quality of work their students produce throughout the year.
There are 14 full year programs at Region 10. Many of these programs offer certification which shows evidence to future employers of the work completed and experience gained. These certifications are specific to each program, and are widely recognized by prospective employers and college admission counselors, as a mark of excellence.
