PTI is fortunate to have a faculty of dedicated teachers, all certified by the B.C. Ministry of Education, who skillfully help students develop the knowledge and skills required by B.C.’s high school graduation program. Classroom learning is enhanced through unique cross-curriculum programs and academic activities, independent and group project research, oral presentation, Jewish Federation Debates, lab activities, and inter-school leagues.

Our annual inspection by the B.C. Ministry of Education consistently indicates that PTI provides a stellar learning environment for students.

As a small school, we offer a single-track university entrance program. If you and your son are considering a science and/or engineering university program, your son will need to enrol in a free distance learning (DL) program that we will be happy to assist with. Parents and students should check the on-line university/college entrance requirements as soon as possible.
