My overall experience with Providence Career Technical is that it is a unique school. Unlike any high school, Providence Career Technical has tech areas to get you ready for your future career. Tech areas like culinary arts, construction, plumbing, and even cosmetology. The tech areas become endless! A school with so much to learn, and also students with special personalities. This school is extremely diverse with the students and overall a great place to be

Many students can achieve a lot of recognition through the clubs and organizations, after-school activities, and administration support. With the recognition they are open to other opportunity's that will help them throughout their incoming years.
I love that it is a vocational school, the career and technology classes are great. I was in the Culinary Arts program all four years during my high school career and the students in the culinary department run a café. It isn't something you see in every vocational school. Great experience.
