Danbury High School has earned a top award in the state for computer information systems. The state Department of Education has recognized DHS for teaching students about computer informations systems with 100 percent of students meeting or exceeding goals. The assessment was based on testing done in April and May through an annual mandate in federal legislation about career and technical education at nearly every high school statewide.
Danbury also ranked number 2 overall in the Connecticut Statewide Career and Technical Education Assessment for schools with 100 of more students being tested. There were 286 students tested at DHS in 11 of the 21 areas of concentration. Of that number, 200 met or exceeded the goals.
Danbury High School's other outstanding scores included 66 of 70 students in medical careers meeting or exceeding the goal, and 18 of 24 students meeting or exceeding the goal in early childhood education.
DHS will be honored for these achievements at the Connecticut Career and Technical Education Conference luncheon on October 15th.
