Ella T. Grasso Technical High School is a school of choice that provides an excellent educational opportunity for young people interested in a school that offers an integrated curriculum. Specifically, we combine a rigorous academic program with the technical skills needed for Connecticut’s future workforce and the challenges of a changing global economy.
When our students graduate they may choose to enroll in higher education, enter apprenticeship programs leading toward occupational licenses, enhance their technical skills in the military or civil service or pursue an alternative career path.
