(Atlantic) Atlantic High School is one of four schools selected by the Department of Education to start a pilot program to increase employability for students.
Atlantic High School Principal Heather McKay explains,
"I'm very hopeful for the work that we can accomplish. I think it fits right in with what the core is in education and looking at employability...and making sure that people can be the best that they can possibly be.”
This should help benefit an area in which Atlantic High School feels they are already strong.
“It's something that we are looking at because we care about our community and we care about our students and want them to have the best lives. We want them to be a part of Atlantic and be a positive part of Atlantic. So we are looking at our curriculum, we are looking at ways we can have further ventures within the community to help students grow.”
