Practical Arts & Career Technical Education
The WTPS Practical Arts/CTE programs offer a 21st century education that guides students towards high-demand career pathways. Practical Arts/CTE programs consistently assess student learning through effective performance-based assignments and activities aligned with New Jersey Student Learning Standards. Through dynamic learning experiences that integrate rigorous applications of math, science, and technology, students are challenged to use critical thinking to solve authentic problems in today’s society. The mission of high school Practical Arts/CTE programs is to foster a continuum of learning to become successful contributors in the global service economy of the 21st century. Through the Carl D. Perkins grant funded by the U.S. Department of Education, we strive to encourage non-traditional student participation and develop more fully the academic and career and technical skills of all students who enroll in CTE education programs.
