The district's engineering program was showcased at the Nov. 11, 2015 Board of Trustees meeting.

The engineering program is available to all students in the district. During its history, 10 students have earned full college scholarships. Currently, some of our engineering alums are interning with NASA, working as a civil contractor for the U.S. Navy in nuclear engineering, and as an U.S. Air Force consultant with Boeing.
