Being a high school student is stressful, and the pressure to study to go to your top college and reach your dream job can make it even more so. On top of all of that, thinking about choosing a career path can be incredibly daunting, especially as a 16-year-old. However, DSST strives to ensure that all students have an opportunity to explore a career path that they are interested in. We do this by incorporating a class into the high school curriculum where students attend professional internships during their junior year. In these internships, “students are able to figure out what they want to do in the future… see if they see themselves in that career,” says Maggie Dering, the Internship Coordinator at DSST: Cole High School.
