The School of Engineering and Biomedical Science offers students an array of advantages, from career readiness and hands-on experience to college preparatory–level classes, labs, and creative exercises. Students attending the School of Engineering and Biomedical Science (SEBS) are set up to succeed in the classroom, in college, and in life.
The school, formerly known as the Pueblo Technical Academy, is housed at Pueblo County High School. This arrangement allows the students of the School of Engineering and Biomedical Science a greater range of high school experiences and elective course choices while maintaining the educational philosophy, rigorous curriculum, and small school feel of the former Tech Academy.
The school’s philosophy is still based upon innovation, application, college preparation, and, ultimately, rewarding careers for its students in the society of tomorrow. The school has expanded its offerings and now offers career pathways in both Engineering and the Biomedical Sciences. Whether a student chooses the Engineering or Biomedical pathway, the scope and sequence of courses provides the student with a solid preparation for college and foundation for lifelong learning and success.
These pathways include specialized classes as well as courses within the “more traditional “high school disciplines. Pathway courses are from Project Lead the Way (PLTW) which is nationally recognized curriculum designed by educators and engineers or medical professionals. More traditional courses, like Language Arts and Social Studies are integrated and applied within the career pathway programs in a way that breaks down artificial barriers between disciplines and demonstrates the real world connections between them.
SEBS courses, coupled with the hands-on, project based integration of “traditional” courses, has earned the school numerous excellent ratings from the Colorado Department of Education as well as recognition as one of Americans Top 100 High Schools, and among the top 5%, by the US News and World Report.
Due to the rigor and relevance inherent to Project Lead the Way courses, many colleges and universities offer college credit and advanced standing opportunities for students who successfully complete these courses. Courses within the Engineering Strand have been articulated with numerous colleges across the nation. The process of articulation has begun for courses within the new Biomedical Strand, and several universities are already awarding credit. Several other SEBS courses also qualify for college credit.
