Waynesville High School partners with area businesses in a way that allows experiential, hands-on learning as part of the high school program.  Students are paired with these businesses in a way that allows hands-on learning in their field of interest, while still attending high school.  Through this program, students can engage active/situational learning through an internship or job shadow experience, which enhances the state expectations of the standards subjects of math, science, language arts, and history.  The end result is a diploma with job experience behind it, and increased job knowledge and awareness, and ultimately, increasesd employability for our graduates.
