The Village School recently added a competitive internship program to support its long-standing commitment to rigorous academic curriculum.
Some of the inaugural internship partners include: Texas Children’s Hospital, Methodist Institute for Technology, Innovation and Education (MITIE), Barbara Bush Houston Literacy Foundation, David Young & Co/Young Intelligence, and Henderson Law Firm.
A sophomore at The Village School, Sharan S., completed 215 hours this summer working with Methodist Institute for Technology, Innovation and Education (MITIE).
“We assisted the surgical techs there,” said Sharan. “If a surgeon asked, we would help suture up cadavers too.”
Sharan and other summer interns also gave tours of the facilities and were able to answer different questions about the work being done at MITIE. This opportunity gave Sharan a chance to gain real-world experience, while still in high school.
“When I grow up I want to be a physician, possibly a surgeon,” said Sharan. “This really gave me exposure to the many aspects of surgery and it’s amazing to see.”
Sharan started his educational journey with The Village School in 4th grade. Currently his favorite subject is biology. He believes his passion for medicine and the quality of teachers at The Village School has given him solid foundation for success.
