Welcome to the Work Experience Department

  • Welcome to the Peninsula Work Experience section.  Here is a brief overview:

    Work experience offers our students the opportunity to experience a possible career option or training in different areas of employment, while attending school and receive credits towards their high school diploma. Student will receive 1 credit for every 36 hours worked at an approved site. Students will check in with their Work Experience teacher both in person, at the job site, and through reflective essays to help support the challenges of the work place.
