College and Career Readiness
There are a wide variety of Career and Technical Educational classes offered at Kissimmee Middle School. Our Career and Technical Education program helps students improve their math, science, literacy and problem-solving skills. These courses are specifically designed to enable students to explore career pathways, determine career interests and aptitudes, and develop basic technical skills in a variety of career areas. Our CTE courses provide focused instruction in “Business Keyboarding, Computer Applications, and Career planning”.
A key component of our Career Technical coursework and S.T.E.M. offerings is Project Lead the Way. This hands-on program boosts classroom engagement and excitement, drives collaboration, and inspires “aha! moments” and deep comprehension. As students engage in PLTW’s activities in computer science, engineering, and biomedical science, they can see a range of paths and possibilities that they can look forward to in high school and beyond.
Kissimmee Middle School is a proud AVID school. AVID, or Advancement Via Individual Determination, provides scaffolded support that students need to encourage college and career readiness and success. Regardless of their life circumstances, AVID students overcome obstacles and achieve success. They graduate and attend college at higher rates, but more importantly, they can think critically, collaborate, and set high expectations to confidently conquer the challenges that await them. Many of our teachers have been trained to engage students using AVID strategies in their classrooms.
