KTEC High School is pioneering an educational revolution in Kenosha County, bridging the gap between traditional high school education and the evolving demands of the workforce. This institution exemplifies the “Big Blur” concept by merging academic rigor with practical career preparation, ensuring that students are not just ready for college but are also equipped with the skills needed for high-demand technical careers.
The focus extends beyond conventional classroom learning. The school emphasizes hands-on experience, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills, preparing students to navigate and thrive in a competitive job market. The unique block scheduling system allows for in-depth exploration of subjects, fostering a deeper understanding and mastery of skills. Each student has the opportunity to earn up to 6 college credits from general education courses in each of the 9th, 10th, and 11th grades. These courses alone represent a savings of almost $4,000 per student. Additionally, students will earn credits for technical courses in their junior and senior career pathway courses, which will amount to further savings.
