Principal Janis McCreary says, "It used to be schools like this were considered vocational education, training kids to go right into the workforce. The difference is we are a career-tech school, so our focus is to prepare the kids for not only the work place right away--if that's what they want to do but for a higher education." "After high school we feel we're preparing them more here because they're getting the hands on experience."
