One of the things about Mt. Blue Campus that stands out the most is the variety of courses that are offered. With more than 150 courses to choose from, students are offered a comprehensive approach to education, and there are classes available in many areas that students might be interested in. One class offered is Engineering and Design, where students can ponder about a problem in the world and then fabricate a tangible product that solves it. Students can try their hand at journalism, writing articles for the school’s newspaper. Another class that might appeal to a different demographic is Sports in Society, a class about the profound impact of sports throughout history. In addition to our engaging college preparatory curriculum, many higher level honors and AP courses are offered for more advanced students. No matter what his or her learning level, there is a class for every student at Mount Blue.
These classes encompass learning that isn’t limited to being within the walls of a classroom. The Foster Technology Center at MBC provides a wide variety of courses where students can experience a certain profession in depth through hands-on learning. Just a few of these courses include firefighting, biotechnology, and CNA training. Students can receive crucial certifications for the advancement of their careers. They can become certified as a bank teller, truck driver or certified nurse’s assistant.
Mt. Blue also has many academically-oriented clubs that promote student growth. One such example is the robotics team, which recently received a grant from NASA for components. Students can join the Math Team and compete with others across the state. Students can also join Curtain Raisers, an improv comedy group that aids students with communication skills. Students have the ability to choose from many different clubs, depending on their interests.
At Mt Blue High School, students have the freedom to study what they are interested in and the ability to challenge themselves with many different levels of courses. Mount Blue students truly have the world of academics at their fingertips.
