P-Tech@PANTHER is an Early College Initiative (ECI) and Career and Technical Education (CTE) school serving grades 9-14, and focusing on building a skilled workforce for the fast-growing technical industry. Our mission is to prepare our students for the demands of college and work, and for a range of competitive careers in Information Technology. In collaboration with Passaic County Community College, and IBM, P-Tech@PANTHER provides students with the skills and understandings to earn a high school diploma, an Associates of Applied Science Degree, and technical skills training over the course of a six-year program. Ultimately, our students will leave us as skilled candidates for jobs on a ladder of career growth in the field of Information Technology, or competitive applicants for four-year colleges. We realize this vision through a thoughtfully designed curriculum, a backbone of career-oriented coursework, and a collaborative approach to problem solving.

A collaborative approach to problem solving is central to how students work in the classroom, and to how our greater school community functions. Our students are engaged in collaborative work in each class. Staff and partners also work in teams to design high quality programs, to monitor progress, and to make revisions when necessary. We are seeking teachers who have the capacity to contribute to furthering the mission of the school and are committed to providing students with an education marked by the program described above.
