In high school, students begin to explore their interests, both in terms of their academics and possible future careers. Students can choose elective classes such as Dance, Drama, PE, Art, Creative Writing, Folklore, Consumer Math and Community Training.
Students are also given greater independence, with a focus on life-readiness. They continue to learn and practice living skills through the Transitions and Living Skills class, Community Training elective, classes at College of Marin and/or their home high school. In high school, students also actively participate in their IEP process. Student in the Living Skills classes serve families during events at Star like the Lobster Feed which gives them real life practice of all the skills they learned in the classroom.
Star also focuses on college readiness and prepares students for their first jobs. Students can take advantage of internships and are able to take classes at the College of Marin for college credit. Students and their parents are introduced to the programs at the Department of Rehabilitation.
