 Hello and Welcome

to the

Industrial Technology Department


The Industrial Technology Department at the junior high school level is dedicated to student exploration of various occupational cluster areas.  Those clusters include the areas of Communication, Manufacturing, Construction, Energy, Power and Transportation, and Engineering.


Junior high school is philosophically meant to be a time when students get a chance to experience different interests and the skill sets associated with them.  Through this process, in industrial technology, students will get the chance to problem solve, design, construct and manufacture, use power tools and high technology equipment, and evaluate project solutions.


Students should be able to make meaningful educational choices related to career interests as a result of taking the courses offered in the Industrial Technology Department.
