Technical Schools

We are lucky here on the cape to have two vocational/technical schools.   Dennis and Yarmouth are both in the Cape Tech district.   This school offers 18 technical programs, including Auto Tech and Auto body, Carpentry and Culinary arts, Health Technology and Early Childhood Development.   They also offer Hotel and Restaurant experience by running their own on site restaurant.   Information Technologies , Marine services, Metal Fab and Welding, Plumbing and Heating are also offered.
These students also participate in a wide variety of academic courses that follow the State Curriculum Frameworks.   Spanish is offered as a Foreign Language.  The students take the MCAS tests like all the other high school students  in Mass.
The students on Cape Cod also have the Upper Cape Tech in Bourne.   If a student wants a course that is not offered in their own district, they have the option of attending the other Technical School if it is offered there.
