The students are placed in interships according to what career they want to go into. For example, students who want to go into education will work in elementary schools. A student who wants to do culinary arts will work at Kneaders or another restaurant. Those who want to enter the medical field will go to a doctor's office, hospital, or health care center.

SFHS students were challenged at an assembly on September 27, 2013 to reach out to others and be a genuine friend through a program known as RDI.

"I think the RDI can help a lot because there are a lot of lonely people, and if we get more people involved, they will all be friends," said SF student Mariah Cook. 

RDI is an accronym. R stands for reach across the divide. D reminds students to discover what is interesting about others, and I encourages students to invite others to be part of something.
