Assabet Valley Regional Technical High School is a dynamic and supportive school system that prepares students to meet the challenges of the future by providing a rigorous and relevant education in a safe and secure environment resulting in academic, career and technical proficiency.
What We Believe
Education is shaped by society to satisfy certain needs, both general and specific, current and anticipated and should be a composite of vocational, technical, and academic courses.
Vocational/Technical education is an integral part of education and is designed primarily to prepare students to enter the work force with marketable occupational skills upon leaving high school. Such an education must include an academic base, which will support and enhance vocational/technical skills as well as prepare students for life in a pluralistic society.
High school graduation marks the beginning of a lifelong need for new learning, skill enhancement, and personal fulfillment. Flexible opportunities and varied programs for adults enrich the educational experience of all students.
Essential to all education is the development of a safe, positive, and caring atmosphere, which allows professional staff, students, and all parties involved to progress. The individual students, whose talents, interests, and needs are recognized as unique, must be the focus in the development of curriculum which remains flexible and encourages each person to develop to the level of his/her capacity.
Aware of its growing responsibilities, the educational staff of Assabet Valley Regional Technical High School accepts with confidence the task of preparing our students realistically for the world of work and for a productive life.
