Drive by either high school this year, Fishers or HSE, and on parts of each campus you’ll see signs like these: “Hard Hat Area” and “Construction Personnel Only”. What’s going up behind these fences? Construction is underway for new learning spaces, known as College & Career Academies. The Academies will open at Fishers and HSE High Schools in the summer of 2015, providing additional classrooms for our growing population. College & Career Academy classrooms and labs have been designed to be innovative, flexible learning spaces, wired and connected in order to maximize STEM (science, technology, engineering, math), Advanced Placement, and dual-credit opportunities for HSE students. As construction proceeds, HSE21 Shorts will revisit the Academies, focusing on new curriculum pathways–enabling personal career exploration and planning for each and every high school student.
