|MAXWELL HIGH SCHOOL OF TECHNOLOGY|
Maxwell High School of Technology is a public charter school and offers 13 cutting-edge programs, with state-of-the-art technology, equipment, and facilities that go beyond what is available in traditional high school classrooms. Students from all GCPS high schools may enroll in these programs to explore industries in depth and gain real-world experience before entering college or joining the workforce. You may be able to earn college credit or advanced placement through articulation agreements with postsecondary technical colleges and universities.
Many Maxwell programs have earned industry certification, in which industry professionals conduct on-site visits to ensure that the programs provide a high-level curriculum, use up-to-date equipment, and model industry-standard work and safety conditions. As a student, you have the opportunity to participate in the Rising Professionals program, studying conflict resolution, business etiquette, business ethics, job application completion, resume writing, and interviewing.
Maxwell students also participate in regional, state, and national competitions through the national nonprofit SkillsUSA. This organization teaches leadership skills, teamwork, and character development.
The Work-Based Learning program gives you opportunities to work in your anticipated career field through cooperative education, internships, and/or apprenticeships, applying knowledge and skills from the classroom to real-life situations in the workplace.
You may register for Maxwell through local school registration. Open house events generally are held in late fall, prior to class registration. Transportation is provided to and from GCPS high schools.
