CTE in the Renton School District

Renton School District CTE programs utilize innovative learning models to deliver curriculum that is relevant to current workplace demands and in line with industry standards.  One of the strengths of the program is the strong partnership between CTE staff, the business community, the City of Renton, and community-based organizations.

Our goal is to help students:

  • identify their strengths
  • explore a variety of career options
  • connect instructional activities to areas of interest
  • interact with the business community at large
  • prepare for education beyond high school

Career and Technical Education courses, both at the middle school and high school level, challenge students to develop academic, technical and personal skills through relevant and integrated learning experiences.

CTE in the Renton School District integrates the following:
