Class Websites

You will find the syllabus as well as important class information on each class page. Before you go on to the class page, think about the following:STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) jobs are increasing faster than people are acquiring the needed skills. Not enough students are graduating with degrees in those fields. China and India both graduate about half their students in those fields, compared to about a third for the United States. This cloud does have a silver lining (and I mean that almost literally) in that the more demand there is for a skillset, the more money companies are willing to pay. You have an opportunity to start your career focus here at BCHS/Mertz Career and Technical Center. We provide you with the ability to take and pass career certification tests which will allow you to definitively show employers or colleges proof that you have the skills you say you have.
