Queens Technical High School

Overview written by the school: Queens Technical High School provides students with opportunities that prepare them for success after high school. We pride ourselves on combining traditional secondary education with the rigorous courses and hands-on experiences of a technical college. Students are prepared for area-specific certifications and licenses that make them top candidates for employment upon graduation. In addition to being prepared for the work force, our students are exposed to multiple post-secondary options, such as college and university, where they can build upon their already existing knowledge or tap into other areas of interest. Despite the high level of rigor, our students engage in a positive family-like school community.
