Scarborough HS preparing kids for careers in computer science

It’s always great to hear about the schools in HISD. Here’s a post from the HISD blog about Scarborough HS.

Scarborough is one of eight district campuses offering a specialized course of instruction designed to give students a strong foundation in traditional subject matter, as well as the technical knowledge they need to land jobs in high-demand fields right after graduation.

Students can earn valuable industry certifications, college credits, and even an associate of applied science degree by August after their senior year. They can also take advantage of field trips that could lead to future job opportunities. One Scarborough graduate landed an internship as an IT professional and returned to HISD last year to help with the district’s PowerUp program.
