Deer Park High School hosted a day of advanced education for its students with a Career and PSAT Day. The collaborative effort was coordinated by business teacher Jill Perry-Eising and the Deer Park School/Industry Advisory Board. Sophomores and juniors applied their knowledge for the comprehensive practice test, while the ninth-grade class participated in an interactive career day program.

The freshman event kicked off with a group assembly and featured keynote speaker Jean Alerte, a Deer Park graduate and successful entrepreneur. Students then broke into small groups to tour job stations, which included approximately 50 representatives from a variety of industries. The ninth-graders took notes as professionals offered helpful information about their educational paths and specifics about their careers in diverse fields, including sales, finance, athletics, communications, technology, medicine and journalism. The interactive sessions provided students with valuable insight into areas of career interest and the chance to network with people established in those industries.
