I have 2 children enrolled in this school and am so grateful for this wonderful opportunity to learn a trade that can ensure them a chance to succeed. I am always impressed by the pride the kids have for their shop each one will tell you theirs is the best. The one area which is a real problem is the way they do their parent teacher conference nights. No appointments are given and there are 11 or so slots so with 800 parents arriving at the same time chances are slim you will get to actually speak to many if any of your child's teachers. Hopefully they will change this but other than that we are happy to have our children attend this school.
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.
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!!!!
