Over the past decade, jobs in health care settings grew more the 20 percent, while jobs in the remainder of the economy only grew 3 percent according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. In order to accommodate this growth, Career and Technical Education, CTE, continues to evolve in order to prepare our students for these careers.
Health Science is a course designed to increase awareness of careers in healthcare. It is also intended to introduce, and begin to prepare students for a career in healthcare. At the middle school level, we focus on increasing interest in the healthcare industry. We also focus on providing real-world skills that will be useful in these careers.
