CROWN HEIGHTS - A Brooklyn high school received national recognition during the president's State of the Union address last night.

President Barack Obama mentioned the school, known as P-Tech (Pathways in Technology: Early College High School), when discussing advancements in education.

"We actually build as a six-year model, with the expectation to simultaneously complete the high school diploma and an associates in applied science," says Rashid Davis, the school's principal.

Davis also says that nearly a third of his students are already in college level courses, and that the high accolades are beyond flattering since P-Tech is only in its second year.
