Twenty-five students graduated from Pima Vocational High School Wednesday. 

The charter school was started 14 years ago to serve young people who dropped out or were at risk of dropping out of traditional high schools. 

In 2013, 92 percent of PVHS students were low income, 37 percent were homeless, 29 percent were parenting and 28 percent were court-involved.

A program of the Pima County Community Services, Employment and Training Department, PVHS helps students ages 16-21 obtain a sustainable job through career-oriented work experience in an applied academic setting.
