 WESTFORD — Nashoba Valley Technical High School welcomed several hundred prospective students, their parents and other community members interested in seeing what the school offers at its recent Open House on Sunday, Nov. 2.
        Judging from the crowd, school officials are expecting next fall to see a large freshman class.
        At Nashoba Tech, students spend the first five months of freshman year going through the “exploratory” process, spending a week in each of the school’s 18 technical programs. At the end of exploratory, freshmen select the top three programs they would like to study, and they are then placed into a program.
        From there, students alternate weeks in their technical program and in academic study.
        Nashoba Tech has been designated by the Massachusetts Department of Education as a Level 1 school based on its MCAS scores. That is the highest level achievable.
        Technical programs offered at Nashoba Tech include: Automotive Collision Repair & Refinishing; Automotive Technology; Banking, Marketing & Retail; Carpentry/Cabinet Making; Cosmetology; Culinary Arts; Dental Assisting; Design & Visual Communications; Early Childhood Education; Electrical Technology; Electronics/Robotics; Engineering Technology; Health Assisting; Hotel & Restaurant Management; Machine Tool Technology; Plumbing & Heating; Programming & Web Development; and TV & Media Production/Theatre Arts.
        Nashoba Tech also offers several Advanced Placement courses and School to Work, a cooperative-education program in which qualified upperclassmen can spend their technical week working full time in their chosen field.
        Nashoba Tech’s district includes Ayer, Chelmsford, Groton, Littleton, Pepperell, Shirley, Townsend and Westford. For more information on Nashoba Tech, call 978-692-4711 or go to www.nashobatech.net
