Pathways in Technology Early College High School

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Pathways in Technology Early College High School (P-TECH) is a New York City public high school that opened in September 2011.[1] It was developed through a partnership between IBM, City University of New York - City Tech, and the New York City Department of Education. The school focuses on post-secondary Information Technology. In grades 9-14, students undertake "hollege" - a program combining high school and two years of college.[citation needed] The current principal is Rashid Davis.

The school is located in the same building as Paul Robeson High School, in the Crown Heights neighborhood of Brooklyn.[2][3]

It just seemed like a really cool program. I mean, we learned how to design and do all kinds of different stuff that you wouldn't have any access to at like a traditional school. I heard about them having a technology pathway which I already loved because I love computers and technology and all of that. So, it's perfect for me. I remember sitting in English class. I'd always look around and eventually look out the window and legitimately watched my life go by. All the cars, everything was just always moving whereas I was stationary. I was sitting there. Just looking. Nothing happening. I can't learn that way. P-TECH is a new way of doing the American high school. A student in a P-TECH program has a very clear career path and everything that they learn is kind of threaded through that objective in some manner. P-TECH was built as a partnership focused on students' needs, business needs and a pathway to college and it's a different environment for students where they get to work on real-world problems in a collaborative setting working closely with expert teacher leaders. They'll never have to ask the question, "Why am I learning this?" It's always very present in the curriculum they're exposed to. There are 5.6 million current job openings in the United States and those job openings do not require a four-year degree or diploma; they require a skill. We have a workforce meet now. Without that staff, I can't grow as fast as I need to grow. There's a tremendous disconnect in a lot of training and education programs where the language of the business community and the manufacturers in this case doesn't align with exactly what's happening in the classroom. We're starting from very scratch. They weren't taught the fundamentals of welding or engineering. I believe it's going to be the number one problem in the country: the skilled trade shortage. If we don't start training our students sooner, we can't compete at the level that we want to compete in Western New York. P-TECH is one of these programs that really understands you've got to start with the job and the employer first and to really work together in an integrated way with education. P-TECH is based on three principles. We want a curriculum that is engaging, significant and relevant to students. The biggest surprise for them is how much they're able to direct their own learning. Voice and choice is really huge at P-TECH. All the teaching is very personalized. It seems like everybody cares about what is best for you. It's pretty nice. You get to know the teachers really well and because you've known them for like as well as you do, you develop a kind of like trust. Our P-TECH teachers are project-based learning ninjas. We've spent a lot of time and resources helping to make sure that their expertise is specifically geared toward designing curricula that will help students learn through projects. We have been able to try blacksmithing like they did and we've made chain mail and seeing different things that they've actually used in history. It is an opportunity to truly discover who you want to be because we're gonna latch onto that. We're going to really help you take that down to its fullest extent. A group of students presented on a Rubik's Cube solving robot that they built and they talked about the iterations; the number of times that they had to try different types of strategies to make certain types, certain parts of the robot work better. And at one point a student said, "I think we tried 30 different ways to get this done." That process, the process of failing and learning and going/moving forward from it, that needs to be formative. Students need to shape their learning from it and regroup and determine their own resolve to getting the problem created and develop the grit to kind of push through it. It's amazing. You don't have to hide from what your interests are. Open up, show people who you are. I'm a lot more involved. I care a lot more about school now. Before I used to be closed and I still had friends and socially and all that but it changed when I came here. Like I said earlier, I feel comfortable being who I am here. I definitely love, like I said, the technology we can use here for example I said we have the 3D printers. We have our makerspace that we have a toolbox full of every tool you need. Jamestown Community College and Alfred State have been key partners in thinking about the curriculum, not just the curriculum of their own classes that they offer, not just the curriculum that our students would be experiencing by taking the classes and credits that they offer, but also the curriculum all the way down to ninth grade. That's the fundamental difference in the nature of partnership of higher education This is a way to jump start your career. This is a way to get into it. I saw an opportunity and I took it. I do have an opportunity for an internship down at Dunkirk Metal this summer. I actually talked to the boss myself and he told me I had great social skills and he is happy to give me the internship. If you learn a skill, you're never gonna starve. You'll always be able to find work. If you don't want to sit behind a desk all day, you like to use your hands, if you're smart and you want to make a really good living and work wherever you want, you ought to think about it. I would tell them if their child has even the smallest interest they should help them pursue this. Training them from the earliest part of their schooling forward makes it much more likely they can find a good well-paying job, a career, a place to work, a place to grow their families. You have a bit more freedom here than you would in a normal high school. I don't really have a best thing, I just like it all. I just like being here. If you come and spend the day at P-TECH, you'll understand why everyone loves it as much as they do. I mean, it's just an awesome experience. You meet some really awesome people, and it's just a lot of fun I think students should come to P-TECH because you learn more, you learn better and I think the rest of the schools should start learning from P-TECH. you



The students at the school focus on STEM (Science, Engineering, Technology & Math) subject areas. Further focus is on Information Technology, with the school aiming to "put technology at the forefront of students' experiences".[citation needed] The school also has an early college high school program, which aims to prepare students for college.

During high school, students take classes at New York City College of Technology, and have an opportunity to earn an associate degree at no cost.[citation needed] After 4 years at P-TECH, students may finish their undergraduate studies at City Tech or another institution, or move directly to a career.

Additionally, students can take part in internships, with IBM and the other partner organizations providing mentors for students.[citation needed]

Student Body

P-TECH is a small school, with classes of around 100 students each year. It opened in 2011 with a 9th grade class, growing over the next three years to an expected enrollment of 400-450. Unlike the city's specialized high schools,[4] students are admitted to P-TECH on the basis of interest only. It is a limited-unscreened school, meaning that preference is given to students who express interest in the school either by attending an information session or through other means. There is no exam required.[citation needed]

The only requirements for students is an interest in technology/STEM and an expanded learning time to go past the high school content into more advanced topics.[citation needed]

Notable Moments

In October 2013, P-TECH High School was visited by President Barack Obama as a part of his message to promote STEM careers and access to college.[citation needed]

In January 2015, with the partnership of Google and Paramount Pictures, as well as the assistance of Bruce Gordon and Tawana Tibbs, P-TECH High School became the only school in the country to receive a free and private screening of the movie SELMA.[citation needed]
