Career Pathways

The Manufacturing and Pre-Engineering Career pathway here at Hawthorne High School will provide you a roadmap to follow as you plan your career with interests in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).

This pathway begins at the high school level through career specific classes that are created to excite our students and staff in engaging our students at a higher level of learning. Because of this higher level of learning our pre-engineering classes are articulated with local Community Colleges that allow our students to receive college credit in the associated courses. This allows our students to become part of a larger workforce development pipeline that links K12 education with Community Colleges, California State Universities and Industry Partners; Opening the door for HHSME students to enjoy the benefits of School/Industry specific Speakers, Field Trips, Job shadowing,  Apprenticeships, earning credit toward an Associate's Degree or later a Bachelor's Degree at our partnership schools leading to the ultimate goal of employing our students at an Industry Partners place of business.

The following list shows main Industry Sectors that we serve but are not limited to:
