Worcester Technical High School opened the doors to its new $90 million, 400,000 square foot campus in the fall of 2006 with 1,100 students. Now in its seventh year of operation, the school has 1,400 students in 24 technical programs. It is the largest of seven high schools in the City of Worcester, Massachusetts. The current demographics of our school consist of: 53% female, 47% male, 63% qualify for free or reduced lunch, 19% are special needs. Ethnic backgrounds reflect the city demographics. Worcester Technical High School has met Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) for "No Child Left Behind" five out of the past six years. The students exceeded the benchmarks in English, mathematics, and every sub-group.

Worcester Technical High School is committed to providing the best academic and vocational technical education. In 2006, the school received national recognition by School Planning and Management magazine, rating our facility as "The #1 Public Education Facility in the Nation". In 2011, Worcester Technical High School was selected as a MetLife / National Association of Secondary School Principals Breakthrough School. This prestigious award is given to five high schools from across the country for outstanding student growth in high poverty areas. Worcester Technical High School was the only school selected from New England and the only vocational technical school selected in the country.

In 5 short years, Worcester Technical High School’s state exam scores rose significantly. In English Language Arts, 77% of our students scored in the advanced/proficient categories, an increase of 50%, with a 3% failure rate. In mathematics, 74% of our students scored in the advanced/proficient categories, an increase of 42%, with a 4% failure rate. In science, 96% of our current 10th and 11th grade students passed with a 4% failure rate. Presently, our students have a 95.8% four year graduation rate with a 1.1% drop out rate.

Students are prepared for success with a rigorous curriculum that combines academics with hands-on experience, in school and in the workplace, through internships and cooperative education jobs. They graduate with all academic requirements and with industry-recognized national certifications. Worcester Technical High School graduates are graduating college and career ready. The profile of our 2012 graduates is: 77% went on to higher education, 18% went directly into the world of work, and 3% joined the military.

This year, we are kicking off our new STEM Early Career and College Innovation Plan. We are looking forward to providing STEM career and college opportunities to all of our students.

Sincerely,

Sheila M. Harrity,
Principal
Worcester Technical High School
