Sci/Tech High School with a cool name

Network World features an interesting sounding high school – Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology. The “cool name” part comes from it being referred to as the “TJ”. The “interesting” part was the description of how students are involved in the ID department, with some volunteering up to 20 hours per week, working on production systems was intriguing. Our high school just had to drop our Cisco Academy program due to lack of enrollment (mainly because we were asking the kids to do AP level work without the AP credit) and I would love top see this level of involvement. We do have a web class where the students are responsible for the HS website, and use a handful of students as technology assistants – but mainly with lower level tasks, like basic troubleshooting, replacing parts, or re-imaging machines.
