PROJECTING OUR FUTURE: 

A FOUR YEAR

COMPREHENSIVE TECHNICAL HIGH SCHOOL

 

OVERVIEW

We are proposing to the State that we become a four-year, full day comprehensive high school in which students are taught both academics as well as career and technical subjects.  The perfect setting for this type of school is available at this time.  Brunswick Landing is in the process of developing a campus populated by future-oriented businesses and industry, and various training and educational organizations, including Southern Maine Community College.  The addition of a comprehensive technical high school would take advantage of neighboring schools and would be beneficial for students. The combination of a comprehensive technical high school, a community college and future oriented businesses and industries in close proximity would allow each to flourish and for maximum sharing of facilities, personnel, programs and equipment.

 

WHY

  • to prepare for high wage, high demand careers in Maine

  • to stimulate the partnership between Region 10 and prospective employers in the Mid-Coast area

    • Grade 9 exposes students to different programs and career possibilities
    • Grade 10 begins to emphasis on the field of first choice
    • Grade 11 provides more specialized focus on technical studies in chosen field
    • Grade 12 expands and diversifies technical studies with emphasis on certification, pre-apprenticeship, internships and gaining college credit through dual or early enrollment options.

BENEFITS
