At High Tech High Chula Vista, all juniors are required to do a 4 week long internship. You start by either acquiring your own internship. Or you can go through the route most chose which is you gather an internship on interview day. This is a day where all juniors dress up in suit and tie apparel and are then interviewed by someone from a certain organization. The last way to get your internship is through Lisa Davis. She has a lot of ties to different companies and associations, she will randomly send emails regarding certain organizations wishing to gain an intern.
Once accepted you will go on your four week long leave from school, and go to your internship for that period. You are required to document this experience, through videos, photos, and note taking.This is then followed up by the student's presentation of learning, here they will display what they learned at there internship site, and if they have grown how and in what way.
