Students are encouraged to try a number of apprenticeships with the citizen teachers. But in eighth grade they are expected to focus on one after-school activity, sort of like picking a major in college. Andres McDade, who tried robotics, skateboarding and film, chose to major in music this year as an eighth-grader.
