The Kern High School District is committed to providing resources for students to make navigating the high school experience easier and more efficient. The time you spend in high school is brief but full of excitement, challenge, and promise. As the need for more educational attainment grows, students need to be prepared for the opportunities that will be available in the coming years in order to be successful in the 21st century workplace and at the post-secondary level.
The high school counselors put together the Resource Guide to help students understand the importance of each academic year--freshmen are meeting new friends, deciding on what classes to take, and are learning their unique strengths; sophomores are identifying career goals and becoming more involved in campus activities; juniors are researching colleges and identifying whether they want to go into a career-technical field or on to a junior college or university; and seniors are preparing for life after high school. All of these experiences are tremendously valuable and ultimately lead to creating productive community members who are prepared for a diverse and changing world. The resources listed will provide easy access to college and career planning. Hopefully, you use this guide as a support during these high school years.
"Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it"--Steve Jobs
