Together they conducted six "Peer to Peer Pathway Panels" during lunch for 8th grade students to learn about programs directly from high school pathway students and teachers. The panels give students the opportunity to share first-hand their experiences in pathways such as engineering, sports medicine, construction, automotive technology, fire science, and animal science. The 8th graders heard about hands on learning, industry partnerships, and course curriculum and were encouraged to ask questions so they could make informed decisions about the pathways they may want to explore in high school.
Another great way for all Arroyo Seco students to learn about high school pathways is during the annual Elective Opportunity Day scheduled every March in the Arroyo Seco MPR. Students from every pathway and elective set up displays and samples of their work in a trade show-like environment, so students can interact and learn about the many choices available at Saugus High School.
