What is maize:connect and how can you get involved? Great questions!
What does high school look like today?
Maize utilizes the "double-block" schedule, meaning that students can earn one credit (complete all of the freshman English class) by the end of their first semester. This system permits students to earn 32 credits in high school, while requiring only 28 credits for graduation. Although students appear to have a great deal of time pre-loaded into their schedules, all pathways and shadowing/internship experiences require several classes to be completed in a specific sequence. If your student in interested in one or more pathways and/or shadow/internship experiences, planning is a must. Researching the pathways and introductory level classes as a freshman and/or sophomore will pay dividends during your student's junior and senior years, allowing them to maximize their interactions with the resources of maize:connect.
When Does My Student Take that Class?
Yes...our students are building a real airplane and shadowing doctors during surgery, but not as freshmen. It takes time to develop the maturity, skills and knowledge needed for "capstone" opportunities. Look for these pathway sequence sheets as you and your student explore our 25 pathways.
