Jules E. Mastbaum Area Vocational High School
We encounter our students as they are and accompany them on their journey.
On this journey, we work as a team to afford our students the civil right of an excellent education in a safe and nurturing school environment. Accordingly, we train our students in unique career and technical based skill, we instruct them with broad academic proficiencies, we guide them in developing leadership capacity, and we validate their personal identity. If our students experience obstacles to learning, we collaborate as a team to remove these obstacles and clear their path to learning.
Our students are builders and so are we. When they leave our care, they leave on a clearly defined path towards a skilled career or college.
Mastbaum. We build the future.
