OnTech Charter School / King & King Architects

Some lower income residents and immigrants in Syracuse may have a better option to acquire diplomas and career-ready skills when the OnTech Charter High School opens in the summer of 2018.  The school’s mission is to deliver an education that’s tailor-made to prepare marginalized students for the workforce using a technique called project-based learning, in addition to Regents coursework.  OnTECH’s founder and president, Ellen Eagen, explains how different this is from the test taking culture Americans are used to.
