This group of graduates are really special to us. Over the past year, they’ve shined bright, exuding perseverance and determination. They are the first graduating class of our new school TAF@Saghalie, and true fearless pioneers.

Through our STEMbyTAF college and career program, all of our graduates have had the chance to gain field experience, participate in internships and job shadows, access industry mentors and serve in leadership positions. Allowing students to “try-out” careers before they graduate provides them a clear vision and path to attain their goals. It also opens doors to careers they may have never been introduced to.

Let’s redefine what a successful high school graduate is. Aside from the rankings and numbers, to us, a successful graduate is one who thinks critically about the world around them and and one who bases their decisions on industry knowledge and experience, 21st-century skills and a deep STEM understanding.

We cannot wait to watch our graduates take the world by storm. Congratulations TAF@Saghalie Senior Class of 2018! We are so proud of you!
