Pamlico County Schools

Career & Technical Student Organizations

All students in career and technical classes at Pamlico County High School have the opportunity to participate in a Career and Technical Student Organization (CTSO).  Through participation in these organizations, students may develop and extend their learning while developing leadership skills. The CTSOs are discipline specific, yet each one has similar goals of leadership development and career success. 

CTSOs reinforce character and citizenship while also developing the technical, leadership, and teamwork skills essential for students who are preparing for the workforce and further education. Civic responsibility and community service are also key principles in each of the CTSOs.
