Gwinnett Coalition project gives Maxwell High School students real-world experience

Mountain View High School junior Michael Lyons has nothing against singing, he’d just rather spend his school elective periods using his hands.

Lyons said he found out about Maxwell High School of Technology’s construction program through a booth set up during his lunch period at Mountain View. He said the chance to work hands-on in a shop sounded “infinitely better” than hearing lectures and taking notes in a classroom.
