I am but a Sophomore, But the time I have been at the school already has been an great experience!. They have college ready classes, like Career choices you can choose from to get you ready or experienced with your career pathway such as, Business, Allied Health, Cosmetology etc. The teachers are great too! they also take the time out to actually help the students, students that tries to put the work in for their grade. There Is nothing that I would change about my school at least not the Academics. That is my Thoughts and my experience at the school.

Ponitz Career Tech High school is in Dayton,Ohio. It is a carrer technical school that tries to prepare you with a skilled trade just incase college is not an option for you. Ponitz is a great school and could be better if we had the resources as the suburban area schools have. I believe that if you want to learn how to get into the automotive industry, photography industries, construction, and etc Ponitz is the place for you.
Ponitz is a Career Tech school, so you can graduate with a certificate or diploma in the field of your choosing. I love the fact that it makes you feel completely ready for college because of all of the career based education. I went there for biotechnology and looking back, I know there was no better high school I could have attended.
