Welcome to Practical Arts EducationClayton High School
Mission StatementCareer and Technical Education (CTE) empowers students with the opportunity to grow and thrive in learning environments where they can practically apply the theoretical skills they have acquired in the other academic disciplines. The CTE curriculum provides Wydown Middle School and Clayton High School students with authentic experiences to serve as leaders, collaborate with peers, and interact with industry leaders. CTE students also learn to problem-solve, communicate and think critically through the creation of tangible, real-world, applicable products that interact with and build community.
