About 800 people from within Nashoba Valley Technical High
School’s district visited the campus for the school’s recent annual
Open House.

“It’s the biggest Open House we’ve had in the last four or five
years,” Superintendent Dr. Judith L. Klimkiewicz said. “We had about
800 people come through the door — parents, prospective students and
some district residents who just wanted to get a look at the school.
There is a lot of interest in technical education right now, and that
obviously was a big reason for the high attendance.”

The event was tailored to seventh- and eighth-graders in the school’s
district and their parents, but community members were also welcome to
come in and see what Nashoba Tech has to offer. There were guided
tours and opportunities to meet with academic teachers and technical
instructors.

Of particular interest to many students and parents were Nashoba
Tech’s new offerings — Biotechnology and Veterinary Assisting programs
started this year, both first of their kind for technical schools in
the area.
