As a new school and the first 9-14 school of its kind, staff and faculty were hired based on their skill in instruction, dedication to our mission, and expertise in subject area as well as college and career readiness. Serving two classes of 224 students total, we have hired 17 teachers, for a student-teacher ratio of roughly 13:1.
The school is led by Principal Rashid Davis, who is responsible for leading the school's development and overseeing operations at the school. He is mentoring and supported by Josephine Tucker, who is a principal intern this year.
In addition, one guidance counselor provides social and emotional support to our smart scholars.Pricilla Martinez-JohnFinally, liaisons from our partners at IBM and City Tech along with two community coordinators and a community assistant work together with administration and the instructional staff to enhance the P-TECH experience through meaningful partnerships and enrichment programs, not to mention all the behind the scenes work of making a school run. With these additions, the in-school staff totals 23 on most days, making the overall adult-student ratio closer to 9:1.
