Career and Technical Education
The mission of Career and Technical Education (CTE) at First Flight Middle School is to empower students for effective participation in the international economy as world-class workers and citizens. CTE programs are designed to contribute to the broad educational achievement of students, including basic skills, as well as their ability to work independently and as part of a team, think creatively and solve problems, and utilize technology in the thinking and problem solving process. We have three CTE Teachers: Wanda Brett-Jordan, Cliff Jenkins, and Mary Jo Smith – all three bring a wealth of experience. Courses that are currently being offered at First Flight Middle School include: Keyboarding and Basic Word Processing, Intro to Office Productivity, Exploring Engineering and Design, Exploring Technology, Exploring Business Procedures and Leadership, and Exploring Personal Character and Careers. Plans are in the making to add CODING for eighth grade students beginning with the 2018-2019 school year.
