“I’m learning how to build furniture and complex objects in Wood Tech 2; I’m able to explore and express my creativity. The Woodshop program is incredibly beneficial because you’re using your artistic side to figure out how to creatively use wood and using other skills, like math, to put it all together.” - Mitchell, Class of 2015
