The thing I like about this school is the amount of help they give you , they push you to step out of your comfort zone to make sure you grow as a student. There are many after school clubs for you to join , and if you see one that you would like to have , they help you create one! The only thing could make better is they amount of teachers that are absent , some teachers are absent for a whole month and it affects the student because no teacher goes out of their way to grade the students work and it hurts our grade and GPA. Besides that it is an amazing school with a lot of hands on in your technical area and you become a family.

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.
