• Important Information on Our Work Based Learning Advisory Program

    Dear Students and Parents:                                                                         

     For the first two weeks in January 2018, all students will participate in Work-Based Learning Advisory. Work Based Learning (WBL) provides students a range of experiences that are designed to create meaningful linkages between work and school and provide students with meaningful exposure to successful professionals in the Engineering and Architectural fields. WBL Advisory is aligned to the Career Development Occupational Studies (CDOS) Learning Standards.  All students, including students with disabilities, who participate in standard State assessments and complete career preparation experiences aligned to the CDOS commencement-level learning standards can earn the CDOS in any of the following ways:

    • As an endorsement to any diploma (local, Regents, or advanced Regents)
    • As a +1 option in lieu of a fifth Regents exam when working towards a HS diploma

    City Polytechnic High School


City Polytechnic High School is committed to a school community where each member accepts responsibility for the learning, academic achievement, and social and cultural development of all students.


The City Polytechnic High School community will meet its mission by building our capacity to work collaboratively as a professional learning community. We envision a school community in which:

  • Each teacher, parent, and student understands the knowledge, skills, and behaviors students are expected to acquire in each course, grade level, and unit of instruction.
  • The learning of each student is monitored on a timely basis.
  • Strategies for improving student achievement according to individual student needs and identified groupings are implemented on a continuing basis.
  • Adults demonstrate a personal commitment to the academic success and the social-emotional and cultural development of each student.
  • Each City Poly student has the opportunity to graduate in 6 years with a CTE endorsed high school regents diploma and college credits leading up to an Associate’s degree.
  • Each City Poly student is college and career ready, and also prepared to serve and improve their communities.

Core Values









All students will acquire and demonstrate the knowledge, skills, and attitudes needed to:

  • Advance through the six-year program and earn college credits leading up to an Associate’s Degree from the NYC College of Technology (City Tech) in Architectural Technology, Civil Engineering, and Construction Management.
  • Gain hands-on experiences with our industry partners through mentorship, job shadowing, and internships.
  • Be a responsible student leader, show strong character, and demonstrate respect and concern for their peers, school, and community.
