Hooksett students begin selecting Pinkerton courses
Several Hooksett students will attend the school next year after a one-year agreement was recently approved between Pinkerton and the Hooksett School Board.
"We are going to try to ensure that they understand who we are and what we do," Harper said.
In addition, Pinkerton's current population of approximately 3,000 students started the process Tuesday to choose from 318 available courses. Course catalogs were scheduled to be distributed, along with the Program Guide for Career and Technical Development.
To guide them through course selection, Harper said students are told of a "five-year plan" at Pinkerton. "It doesn't mean you're going to Pinkerton for five years," Harper said. "It means (considering) what are you going to do when you get out of here."
Harper offered some advice for students who are going through the course selection process. He said some students will sign up for a course solely because their friends are taking that subject. Although it's a popular approach, it's better to tailor courses to the individual, he said.
