CORE PLUS AEROSPACE AT OPTIONS: PREPARE FOR YOUR FUTURE

 

The Core Plus Aerospace curriculum at Options High School in Bellingham, WA helps students learn manufacturing skills that will give them more options after graduation. Every day, students from Bellingham’s three comprehensive high schools join students at Options High School to pursue individual career interests and develop hands-on skills that will give them an advantage after high school in whatever they pursue—work, apprenticeships, postsecondary education, or training.

“It’s a great opportunity for students to explore or prepare for the future,” said Jared Greenwood, Career & Technical Educator at Options High School. “These students will enter a workforce in Bellingham and Washington state that needs workers with the STEM and manufacturing skills we’re working on every day.”

Learn more about the Core Plus Aerospace curriculum at Options HS in our latest video, “Prepare For Your Future.” And read a Q&A blog post with instructor Jared Greenwood here.
