Our Mission

TREND - Transportation (cars, boats, trains!), Engineering (cool buildings, bridges) and Design (make it BEAUTIFUL and functional) - offers a rigorous, dynamic curriculum that prepares students for post-high school college and career opportunities.  Our shared vision is based on the following core values:

  • To integrate a technical and academic education that leads to potential careers in transportation, engineering, and design.
  • To create a learning environment that fosters respect for self and others while promoting honesty and integrity.
  • To provide programs with high expectations that develop the skills and talents of each individual as well as the skills required to work successfully as team members and leaders.
