    In addition to studying career-focused curricula and working on collaborative projects, AOHS students gain critical career knowledge through a series of work-based learning experiences both inside and outside of the classroom. These include job shadowing events, mock interviews, résumé writing workshops, and the culminating experience—a compensated internship. Local business partners work with educators to provide these opportunities that round out their education. By serving on advisory boards and as mentors, business partners provide a real world connection that helps students understand the pathways to career success.
