SHS Among State’s Career, Technical Education Leaders
Stevenson was featured during Winter Break in this Daily Herald article about the growth of career and technical education enrollment in Illinois high schools. Even though the overall number of high school students in the state has declined since 2016, the number enrolled in CTE courses has increased, according to the Illinois State Board of Education.
Stevenson is among suburban CTE enrollment leaders with 1,962 students, based on the most recent state report card data. Director of Applied Arts Dr. Wendy Custable talked with reporter Bob Susnjara about Stevenson’s success. Senior Gavin Meng also was quoted in the article. To see the variety of career and technical education courses available at SHS, check out the Applied Arts Division section of the 2020-21 Coursebook.
