REVERE (WBZNewsRadio) - The High School curriculum is getting a make-over at Revere's new CityLab High School this year, giving students a hands-on and project-based learning experience.
"When I started looking, I was really looking to change the way school had been done." Principal Dr. Stacey Mulligan said. She received input from students, staff and families as to what they'd like to see when it comes to their education.
The school still offers a core high school education, but also offers career and college-oriented learning opportunities, allowing students to work in studios and labs, as well as take on apprenticeship programs.
"The kids will be experiencing class through out the city of Revere and the city of Boston." Mulligan told WBZ's Brooke McCarthy.
Students can get a feel for a number of industries including video game design, construction and the arts.
School officials hope that by the time every student walks across the graduation stage, they'll have 30 college credits under their belts.
