About McFatter Tech
William T. McFatter Technical High School offers an integrated curriculum, state-of-the-art technology, project-based learning, alternative assessment, digitized portfolios, technical exhibition, college-type block scheduling, industry involvement and distance learning. As a whole school magnet, we are committed to providing an education for ALL students that allows them the opportunity to achieve three primary goals:
- Acceptance to a Four-Year University
- Post-Secondary education articulation
- Certification in a high wage, high demand technical area
The faculty and staff of William T. McFatter Technical High School are dedicated to integrating rigorous academic study with cutting edge technical training.
In order to achieve these goals, every student is required to take a college preparatory curriculum of 24 credits, predetermined by the state of Florida, and an 8 credit course of study in a technical field selected by the student. McFatter requires the same 24 credits for all students. The 8 technical credits are studied in the junior and senior years. Students are dual-enrolled for post-secondary credit in the technical courses.
