WCPS - Tech High (Be What You Want To Be)


Published on Jul 6, 2017
Washington County Public Schools challenged HighRock to create a commercial that would get kid's attention, get them excited, and raise awareness for all the great career courses available. The target audience was teens and pre-teens, so we filmed this project with a 24mm to have a similar perspective to a phone camera.

Skills for Success (SFS)
Maryland developed the Skills for Success (SFS) in order to provide a readily understandable set of skills essential for students’ future success in three learning environments:  postsecondary education, the workplace, and the community.  They were dubbed skills to distinguish them from the knowledge-centered content standards and core learning goals in English, mathematics, science, and social studies.  They are descriptions of what students should know and be able to do upon graduation from high school.
