This is the image for the news article titled PATHS Fest Set for May 26 The Portland Arts and Technology High School (PATHS) will be hosting PATHS Fest on Thursday, May 26, to celebrate and showcase the many programs that are offered at the regional career and technical education center.

Each program will display the work students have been doing throughout the year as well as have interactive activities for other students to participate in.

The celebrations will be held at 8:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. in the garden area behind the school, located at 196 Allen Avenue. PATHS stakeholders and community members are invited to join to see the amazing work that students have been doing all year.

PATHS offers nearly 20 programs. They include automotive collision technology; automotive technology; carpentry; commercial art; culinary concepts; dance; early childhood occupations; fashion marketing; food service; health science occupations; landscapes and gardens; manufacturing technology; marine systems; masonry; music; new media; plumbing and heating; welding technology/blacksmithing basics; and woodworking.

All PATHS programs are designed to reflect current business and industry needs and incorporate changing technology. The programs help prepare students for 21st century jobs.

PATHS students – who come from Portland and nearly 20 other communities – have to meet the graduation requirements of their sending high schools, but have also chosen to attain other skills and training by attending PATHS. Whether their next step is college or career, that additional learning gives them a decided advantage.
