  1. My son is going to Oswego high in the fall , and in the past few weeks he told me he wanted to be a Doctor or a Nurse, Because he has had 4 open heart surgery’s, and he wants to give back the life he was given . This would be so great for him to do. but in the past he has had a thing or two happen to him in school, and had to learn the hard way to just walk away from people the pick on him. I guess what I need to know is what is it that we would need for my son to come in and take mash I’m sure he would be great at this.
    Thank you for you time in reading this .
