If some students at Centennial High School say they nailed their final exams, they are speaking a little bit more literally than you might expect.
Mike Palumbo, an instructor in the school’s well-regarded construction tech program, also owns his own construction company. And through a special agreement with Pueblo City Schools (D60), he put his students to work actually building a custom home.
The students spent several weeks working on the home, starting with the foundation and working their way up. Last week, they had their final exam in the class, which was quite different from the exams held for more traditional courses of study.
