The school also provides free career development programs to many adults from its sixteen member towns.
Minuteman has a special mission which you can review if you click here. It is the only truly comprehensive high school in our sixteen member communities. It combines rigorous academics and preparation for college (the main purpose of traditional local high schools) with carefully designed relevance to career exploration and learning (the main purpose of vocational-technical schools). This combination or comprehensives comes from the original planners of the school as they focused on needs of students living along the Technology Highway of Massachusetts. Other area schools sometimes use the label ‘comprehensive' but under state regulations are not allowed to operate the Chapter 74 technical programs available at Minuteman. So Minuteman offers some very special advantages to students, advantages that you can review if you click here.
