Health Education

Grade 9 students will be scheduled for one trimester of health. Students will review pertinent health topics which influence the choices they make in the near future. The importance of educated decision making will be highlighted. The hazards of tobacco, drugs and alcohol will be reviewed. Nutrition and obesity will also be studied. The endocrine system, sexuality and childbirth will also be discussed. Abstinence and personal responsibility will be emphasized, and contraception will be reviewed. Open classroom discussion will be promoted, so therefore any health issue may also be briefly discussed. A variety of learning avenues will be utilized, such as reading from the text, class worksheets, homework assignments, projects, videos and slideshows

Pathfinder Tech offers a wide range of vocational technical programs that give students a competitive advantage both in college and the workforce. These sixteen programs are designed to help students create and follow pathways to a career of their choice.  Pursue your passion and enjoy your education!

The Cooperative Education Program at Pathfinder is an optional experience for seniors and juniors (second half of the school year) having a minimum 1,000 hours in their technical area. Through a cooperative arrangement between the school and employer, the student will receive job placement related to their technical area of study during their “shop week” with wages paid by the employer. To be eligible, a student must have the recommendation of their technical program teachers, meet the required grade, attendance, and discipline standards. The student must also have their OSHA 10-hour card. Some technical areas may require additional certifications prior to entering the program.
