Vocational Education


Portland Arts & Technology High School (PATHS) courses are open to CBHS students in grades 11-12 (unless mandated otherwise by an IEP). PATHS courses are designed both for career-bound and college-bound students who are serious about gaining new skills and knowledge through applied learning. Classroom instruction, extensive labs, and community-based internships combine to give students real life experience in career directions. PATHS classes typically meet daily and are an extension of the high school schedule, counting towards graduation, usually as elective credits. Starred courses below are also offered on a semester basis. CBHS students who would like to visit PATHS classes schedule visitations through Mr. Hale.
