Hello, Xello!

This year, students starting from middle school up to high school have begun using a program called Xello. The general idea behind Xello is that, early on, students begin exploring potential career pathways. Xello helps students build the skills, knowledge and plans to be ready for their future. This fits in nicely with our revised course catalog, helping students understand which paths they can take to get where they want to go.  For middle school students in particular, using Xello will be especially helpful as they begin thinking about high school.

You can learn more about Xello and the student experience at www.xello.world.
