Both my children now attend Platt Tech and they are both doing really well there. The staff and faculty truly care about the students and really work hard to make sure the kids excel!

My daughter is a new freshman to Platt, everyone has helped her adjust. It is refreshing to be part of a school where the faculty really cares. This is a big difference from West Haven High where she attending the first part of 2010 schoolyear.

My son is a junior at Platt. Academically, he has excelled. The teachers taught him the tools to do so. All of a sudden he's a poised, grown up young man... already making his plans for the future.

Vanguard selection makes it one of the best schools in the state

I have two sons one of which went to Platt Tech. This school gave my son the most possitive influence to succeed. The principal 'Laporta' puts so much of himself into this school, it shows in everything this school is about. The Pride this school has in their achievements is above and beyond anything I would have expected. My son is now graduated and in College. He took away from Platt, his own self worth and confidence to succeed in anything he wanted. I quote the words of LaPorta 'What you do in these few years of High School effect the rest of your life goals' Great job Platt Tech!!!!

This school is excellent. They run a tight ship and keep out the troublemakers. It has been a great experience for my son, who is now a senior. It was, without a doubt, the best decision my husband and I have ever made for him.
