Mashpee High School is constantly trying to allow a plethora of options to both its current students and those coming in. The school and the administration within has really shown their care for innovation and exploration of many different fields throughout the departments. Over the past few years opportunities within the Career and Technical Education (CTE) department have skyrocketed. I have taken many classes in the CTE department. I’ve been in classes from digital art to my favorite class, Drafting and Communications, which has allowed me to find the career I am pursuing.
The new developments within the CTE department has led to even a new expansion. This past year there has been a brand new classroom being worked on to help train students in the ways of the medical field. This class will allow any students with an interest in the medical field to gain a realistic and hands-on experience learning many different skills. It has all sorts of simulations, from learning how to take blood to experience and learn EMT work, that will really help give experience and perspective to the students who take this class.
