17 Oct Wait. Are Students Ready for the Real World? Really Ready?
What do you know about the “real world”? Have you considered that a free public high school is the perfect place to practice real world life skills before you get there? Get ready to prepare for a brilliant future after high school at the School for Entrepreneurship and Technology (SET High).
Real World Problems
Gen Z students are already thinking of values they hold dear for future workplaces. Take the hot topic of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI). Out in this ever-shrinking technology-driven world, career opportunities open up in virtually every country. This in and of itself is not a problem, but not learning how to listen to, collaborate with, accept, and provide equitable treatment to people different from you is. In the small SET High community you’ll work with a wide range of teachers and students, while also taking a deep dive into your authentic self. Who are you really and who do you plan to be in the future? How are others going to work with you?
Real World Solutions
Critical thinking and innovation abound here at SET High! Together we take hard looks at real world problems and work on potential solutions. Sure, you’ll learn how to solve equations in math and chemistry classes. You’ll tinker and invent stuff in say, Robotics. But you’ll also have the opportunity to use high school as the safe place to practice soft skills necessary for real world solutions, like:
- Active listening
- Effective communication, and
- Creating community

Imagine the benefits of confidently entering the real world with the passion and compassion necessary to make positive change. Why wait to realize these benefits?
