Columbia-Montour AVTS saved my life, and I know it saved many others as well. This school allowed for a second chance; it welcomes those who think differently. Those who are ready to focus on their careers, who want to play to their talents... this school is for you. At Vo-Tech, you meet people from all over the area whom you may not have met before. You enrich one another's lives and your world gets a little bigger. The possibilities are endless as you have hands-on opportunities to venture into a plethora of fields and gain the upper hand of early education. I am a 2008 alumni and I can say the fond memories are forever with me. 10/10, all the way.

My experience at CMAVTS was a great experience! I wouldn't change my High School years for anything. The school has many different traits to study, with a wonderful teaching staff. Everyone is friendly and helpful with a good blend of students from different sending schools. The only thing I would ever be able to change about the school was if there were more sports!
Columbia-Montour VO-Tech is a good school for trying to find out what you want to do in life. They give you the chance to experience different trades and meet new people from outside of your community. Most of the teachers there are very helpful and will do their best to help you succeed, all you really need to do is ask them for help. 10/10 I would recommend other to go here and leave their comfort zone to try something new.
