    Students attend the School of Education and Social Services because they are interested in a career helping others, including teaching or administration, psychology, social services, or early childhood education. During their freshmen year, each student takes an overview course to help determine if they want to pursue the Child Related Professions, Social Services, or Education cluster.

    Once a student selects a cluster, they attend classes and participate in real world-experiences to help prepare them for their future career. Many students intern in classrooms and other professional settings as an upperclassman. After school tutoring is also provided for students who need extra help.
