School to Work

Welcome to the home page for the Northwestern High School Vocational Learning Program. The study of the Vocational Learning Program should result in people who participate in and adapt to the dynamic world of work. This study provides application and immediate relevance to principles of math, science, and other subject areas while focusing on the development and application of vocational related work experiences. Thus, students of the Vocational Learning Program become self-learners and problem-solvers, as well as self-reliant and productive members of society.
