Project LEADS is an after-school civics engagement program in partnership with Bergen County that enables students to learn about programs across various sectors of the county. Currently, students are concentrating on environmental programs. They are tasked with proposing improvements to current policies and procedures. Entrance into a senior-year Public Policy class will be offered to students based upon their proposals and the quality of their research and presentations.
Applied Technology High School is in its third year of operation; we will graduate our first class in 2019. Students are provided services such as workplace externships, senior internships, college visits, assistance with the college application process including SAT and financial aid preparation, and access to our yearly College Fair.
Parents of Applied Technology HS students maintain an active PTO, and are involved in sponsoring events and outings, as well as serving on the school's advisory board with industry partners and postsecondary institutions. Workshops/information sessions are offered to parents several times each school year on topics ranging from college preparation to stress-management; informal Parent/Principal meetings take place yearly. The PTO hosts dinners and informal gatherings for the school community.
Applied Technology High School is located in a newly-renovated, air-conditioned building on the Bergen Community College Paramus campus, complete with an Innovation lab, cafeteria, nurse's office, and administrative suite. Students have access to the college's gymnasium, library, and Science and Technology labs. Students choosing an art elective have access to the college's art studios. Students also have the opportunity to participate in the college's theatre performances.
As a Career and Technical Education program, a vital component of our high school program is the creation of partnerships with postsecondary educational institutions and the business sector. These alliances provide students hands-on, real-world experiences that connect their academic and technical studies with future professional applications, and enable our students to earn college credits through dual-enrollment courses. Our students have had opportunities to participate in hands-on technical projects with Stryker Orthopaedics and the Enable Community Foundation, among many other projects offered by our partners. Stryker Orthopaedics provided our freshman students a collaborative engineering challenge dubbed the Rover Design Project, in which students were tasked with constructing a 6-wheeled, skid steer rover, and designing and producing a mounting fixture for a board camera and 5.8GHz analog video transmitter that allowed remote operation of the rover. Students were presented a novel project by Enable Community Foundation: learning the principles of 3D design using Tinkercad as part of the process of designing an ECF hand. The Enable Community Foundation is a non-profit corporation created to deploy innovations for people with limb differences. The 30 students who participated in this first lesson produced two completed hands and six that were completed by the Foundation. Our postsecondary partners provide advice on curriculum choices as well as afford students a wide choice of dual enrollment courses. Through these unique program features, we seek to offer our students a multiple of pathways after graduation that include completion of an A.S. or A.A.S. degree at Bergen Community College, application to a four-year college or university, entrance directly into the workforce, or a combination of academic and/or technical education and employment.
