What is a Multiple Pathways approach?
The Multiple Pathways approach offers students the opportunity to choose from a variety of programs that offer academic rigor and career preparation that students need to move ahead in learning and job training while becoming strong, active, and participating members of their community.
Using small learning communities, teachers and students integrate academic and career-and-technical education classes which give students an educational experience that connects to the world of work. These students enroll in both high school courses and college courses provided by Rubidoux High School and Riverside City College and follow a pathway of their choice.
Currently, pathways in the following areas have been developed: Public Safety, Health, and Liberal Arts. Students that select these pathways may pursue careers in the following areas: police officer, firefighter, probation officer, nursing, dental assistant, physician assistant, medical assistant, paramedic, emergency medical technician, criminal justice, and early childhood education. As part of each Pathway, students also participate in a career preparations course that includes an internship relevant to the students' academic and personal interests.
