Program Summary: Aviation High is located on the grounds of Oakland California’s airport. The school puts “at risk” kids on an academic track while also teaching concrete skills in aviation maintenance and business. This webstory shows the teens at Aviation High learning physics, math and poetry through hand-on projects that all relate to flight. The students are smart, funny, motivated … and great break dancers!
