Our Trip to Passaic County Technical Institute

Passaic County Technical Institute

 

This week, my Daughter and I went on a tour of PCTI to see if she would like to go to High School here. The School is amazing. It is a secure campus, set up on a mountain top in Wayne, NJ and it boasts its own Athletic Center, complete with indoor pool, a zip line and obstacle course, athletics, galore!  It’s own restaurant, bank, printing shop, you name it! 

 

Here, we are at the TV station by the green screen, interview set, control room….

 

 

 The most interesting thing to Rachael was the School of Communication and the art rooms.

 

 

Of course, I liked the Johnny Depp drawing! 

 

The school was like a city!

It took us about 2 hours to tour the school.
 
I was most impressed with the Criminal Justice room with the NJROTC and its Commanding Officer, who happened to be in the class I was visiting. She was an outstanding individual who is in charge of 300 students, along with Retired Naval Officers who guide them all. She just wanted to make me stand up and cheer (and sign all my kids up for the ROTC!!)
 
It was very impressive to see such a dedicated young woman with a passion for Leadership.
 

 
The classrooms were all busy and bustling, filled with each school’s individual blend of tools needed for each concentration. You can see the hard work and dedication of each classroom and the energy that filled the halls of the institute. I look forward to hearing from admissions that she will officially a part of the Class of 2017!  
 
Loudly yours,
