The Deer Park Community City School district recently used $3.5 million in funds to build upon and expand its unique Career Academy and athletics facilities.
The partial renovation to the high school lower level provides team breakout rooms, mock interview spaces and innovative spaces to provide the students with a real world feel of business practices conveniently in their own high school. Each career academy aligns with a specific, high-demand career pathway led by industry leaders and specially trained teachers. Flexibility of the spaces is key, with the newest technology and modular furnishings allowing for the innovative use of teaching and training methods now and in the future.
The current locker rooms will be updated to modern facilities that include new finishes, highly-efficient HVAC systems, plumbing and technology.
The Career Academy tracks available to the Deer Park students are:
Digital instructional design
Construction project management
