Education that Works!
TPS has a variety of career technology offerings taught in each of our six high schools. Students can select training in one of fourteen career technology pathways. If the particular area of training is not offered in their home school, students can elect to transfer to the school offering the training, or spend part of their day in their home school and the other part at the location offering the career technology pathway they want to pursue.
These areas of training can lead to employment in the senior year through co-op agreements with local businesses, early placement training with an employer during the senior year or internships with an area professional.
Most Career Technical courses are TECH PREP programs, which offer rigorous curriculum opportunity to earn college credit and prepare students for a two-year associate program or a four-year baccalaureate degree.
