Pacific Technology School opened their Santa Ana campus in 2009 as a charter school to provide students in 6th through 9th grades with an option over traditional school settings with a focus on math, science and technology. The school prepares students for their future and success.
Along with core subjects, the school offers very few sports and very few extracurricular activities. The activities available do focus on the performing arts with technology and science driven courses as well. This is a downside expressed by parents and students.

The opinion of the school is very high with parents proud of the achievements of their children since attending Pacific Technology School. Parents expressed that they love the online tracking of their child’s progress as well as how nice and friendly the teachers can be. Students expressed they like the school but as mentioned above they would like to see more extra curricula activities and sports.
