CROWN HEIGHTS - P-Tech students met with mentors from IBM today in the second year of a groundbreaking program in Brooklyn.

President Obama has praised the school, which teaches grades 9 through 14. All students graduate with a high school diploma and an associate's degree. Mentors say the students are also first in line for jobs at IBM.

The first class of graduates will complete their degrees in two to four years.

Gov. Cuomo announced the state plans to open 10 similar schools based on P-Tech's model.
