With students engaged in group project work using cutting-edge technology in the innovation spaces (our classrooms), the Learning Commons and other workspaces throughout the day, the culture and activity at HFM PTECH looks much different than most schools.

Students and staff enjoy sharing about the environment here and invite educators, businesspeople, government leaders and others to visit.

We offer visitation sessions at our Jansen Avenue location in Johnstown, NY, on the first Wednesday of the month during the school year.

Please note, these sessions are not geared toward prospective students and their parents. All students who apply will visit and spend time at PTECH during the interview portion of the application process. If a student would like to shadow for a day prior to applying, please check with your guidance counselor, and a date can be coordinated for a visit.

Availability for morning and afternoon sessions alternate each month.

Each session is approximately 90 minutes in length and includes a tour and time in the classroom led by a student ambassador, an opportunity to speak with teachers and ask questions and an overview of the school with the principal.

Visitors are required to register for a particular session by completing the registration form.

We don’t want to keep our successful practices or the lessons we’ve learned since launching the school in 2014 a secret, so we look forward to accommodating group and individual visits.

We are located at 305 Jansen Ave., Johnstown, NY, 12095.
