Prepa Tec High School

Prepa Tec High School is a public, tuition-free charter school funded through state and federal dollars like traditional schools. Open to all students, Prepa Tec is the vehicle realized by Xavier Reyes and several families that worked together with the goal of offering an education that will bring a love of learning to the classroom for their children and yours.

The intent of the Prepa Tec Charter was to become a continuum school for the International Baccalaureate Program, offering the Primary Years Program (PYP), the Middle Years Program (MYP) and the Diploma Program (DP), and finally the Career-Related Programme (CP). It takes approximately three years to implement and become authorized for each program. As of January 2019, Prepa Tec is anticipating a spring 2019 Authorization visit from the International Baccalaureate for the Diploma Programme and will be submitting the application for Authorization for the Middle Years Programme.

IB Schools have eight subject groups. Prepa Tec High School currently offers all eight subjects to the 9th and 10th graders, including:

Language and Literature
Language Acquisition (Spanish)
Individuals and Societies (World Geography and World History)
Sciences (Biology and Chemistry)
Mathematics (Algebra I and Geometry)
Arts (Visual Arts)
Physical and Health Education

The Diploma Programme offers six subjects to students, with a variety of choices. Please look for communication regarding our exciting course offerings for next school year from Mr. Aguirre.
