Sam Houston will begin its P-TECH program for mechatronics and logistics next year.

This consists of college classes giving students an associate in applied sciences, and an industry certification allowing them to get good paying jobs straight out of high school, P- Tech principal Christy Sullivan said.

“I think that this will be really good for students interested in the courses,” Sullivan said. “Freshmen will have their own space with a support system for the rigorous courses.”

Construction will start this summer in the lower 200 hallway to create an isolated location within the school. This will build a supportive environment to help with the rigorous courses and will build a bond between students, she said.

“We are still in the planning stage but, by the end, we hope to have made our own community,” Sullivan said.
