CTE Pathways in Mashpee
Did you know that Mashpee Middle High School has a strong and vibrant Career and Technical Education (CTE) Department? Students can develop in-demand skills, obtain industry recognized credentials and engage in work based learning experiences during their high school experience. CTE works for all students. Upon graduation, students enrolled in our CTE programs are prepared to enter the workforce, pursue further education or join the military. It all depends on their individual goals and career choices.
Our CTE pathways include: Culinary Arts, Manufacturing, Art and Communications, Early Childhood Education, Business and Finance and our brand new Health Services pathway. We partner and align our programs with the local business community to provide our students with the opportunity to engage in work based learning experiences. The technical and professional skills our students acquire give them a competitive advantage in the workplace.

Many students are already enrolled in CTE in Massachusetts, developing technical, academic and employability skills and engaging in work-based learning experiences with industry partners.
