At the same time, Alex recognizes that he has many other strengths and interests. As Editor-in-Chief of his school’s yearbook, he “runs” two yearbook classes, managing 27 student staff members, overseeing content, leading his team to create 288 to 300 page books, and being part of a program that has been repeatedly recognized among the best in the state.
“I’d like to become an investment banker for a big firm and I imagine myself working a few years in New York City or Chicago or Dallas,” said Alex.
His penchant for leadership is also illustrated in his membership in the Superintendent’s Student Ambassador program, a small collection of students who offer input and reflection to help guide some district decisions.
Alex is following the Multidisciplinary Studies Endorsement and Brandon is targeting the STEM Endorsement.
Multidisciplinary Studies Endorsement
A student may earn a multidisciplinary studies endorsement by completing foundation and general endorsement requirements (including Algebra II and a fourth advanced science course) and:
(A) four advanced courses that prepare a student to enter the workforce successfully or post-secondary education without remediation from within one endorsement area or among endorsement areas that are not in a coherent sequence
(B) four credits in each of the four foundation subject areas to include English IV and chemistry and/or physics
(C) four credits in advanced placement, International Baccalaureate, or dual credit selected from English, mathematics, science, social studies, economics, languages other than English, or fine arts.
