There are virtually endless reasons that I endorse Mat-Su Career Tech. Primarily, I find the fact that my relationship with the teachers and students is absolutely strong, fun, and career-supportive. Our very noticeable STEM focus and career preparation options give the school it's due credit. My classmates literally shaped me, and I them, to be the next generation of extensively prepared hard workers. Tech Pride!

Mat-Su Career and Technical High School does not have any sports teams or art classes as it focuses on the technical aspects of a career. With that in mind, students who wish to pursue the arts or any sport aren’t given that option at the school. However, in all, it is highly regarded for its focus on a student’s future. Not only are the basic academics provided but also different pathway options. A student is given the opportunity of pursuing and discovering the different career pathways (such as nursing, tourism, aviation, building, business, and the options go on).
I am incredibly satisfied with my experiences at Mat-Su Career Tech. The students are friendly and hard working, and the teachers are always willing to help when you need it. Our math teachers are brilliant and inspired with a love of problem-solving and exploration, and our science teachers even more so. Our social studies teachers and literature teachers have an incredible passion for their subjects. If you like sports, you will have to travel to another school in order to participate in any, but this just means that our school is focused highly on academics.
Our extracurriculars are top-notch, and led by passionate students and teachers advice.
