St. Georges Technical High School opened its doors in 2006 and currently offers comprehensive high school academic curricula and career and technical training in sixteen different career areas. We take great pride in preparing our students to exceed academic expectations and graduate college and career ready. We have highly qualified teachers that are trained to provide a classroom/career environment that is challenging and supportive. Teachers effectively use research-based strategies that have proven to enhance student achievement, specifically in content and career area literacy. Students consistently practice their reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills throughout the school day across all courses, including career areas. Through collaborative planning, our instructors develop curriculum aligned to State standards, analyze student data, and increase student achievement.
Welcome to St. Georges Technical High School! Our team’s philosophy is that every student and every teacher will learn and grow every day. Our instructors work alongside our students, reflect on critical feedback, and improve individually through developing a growth mindset. In a growth mindset, people believe that their most basic abilities can be developed through dedication and hard work (Dweck). It is our belief that students and educators learn and grow by attempting something new, working hard and making mistakes. Our goal is to develop independent learners that are capable to be productive citizens in a diverse, global society.
Our students are exposed to a unique learning environment that bridges the gap between classroom learning and workplace skills. Each morning after the morning announcements, our student announcer concludes with the following slogan: “Why walk? Be proficient, independent and fly like a Hawk!” The opportunities and partnerships that our students are exposed to will help them take hold of their learning and accomplish the future goals they strive to achieve.
I encourage you to explore our school’s website to learn more about what our school offers.
