This is a great school. I am in the child development program. I am in what's known as an island program because it's not at the career center. It''s at Pilgrim High School. I take a bus every day from Vet's the Pilgrim for half of the school day. There is another island program at Vet's called marine trades. In the program I am in, we run a preschool Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Tuesdays and Thursdays are prep days. We write professional lesson plans for activities we plan and we teach it. Our teaching performance is a huge part of our grade. The first semester of your first year, you do book work and take test ect. just like English or History class. You learn about the stages of child development. Then second semester you work in the preschool. There are lots of programs in the career and tech center. There's a nursing program, a culinary program, a carpentry program, auto tech, electronics, electricity, CISCO networking, fashion merchandise, graphic design, aviation at East Greenwich, and business financing at West Warwick. Each one runs a business or contributes to one. The teachers are strict but they're just trying to get us ready to get a job in the real world.
