I am three days from finishing my second year as a student at A. Maceo Smith New Tech High School and I am loving it. Being a student at this high school has allowed me many wonderful opportunities, such as meeting some of my closest friends, learning more about technology, being in leadership roles, helping to create something huge, and much more. Although we are a tough school and sometimes things become too much, which I believe is normal of high school, it is helping me to grow into a great person and build a better future for myself. Overall, as a sophomore student becoming a junior student at this school, I would proudly invite others from any type of background to come to A. Maceo Smith New Tech High school to come and spend the best years of your life here with us.

Technology, Trust, Respect and Responsibility. Those are the things we live by here. Small classes so you can get more one on one time with your instructors. The teachers are so easy to talk to, and they try to be as engaged with the student as possible.The whole school is very fun with projects that engage us as students and make us think creatively. The spirit of every class; seniors, juniors,freshman, it's contagious and it makes you really have pride in being there. Every student has so many opportunities to expand their horizons; clubs to chose from which they have interest in, college visits, community services to help our community. Overall it was a great experience and I'm sure anyone here would say the same.
As a senior of A. Maceo Smith New Tech high school I have expereinced a wonderful four years in this academic facility. From the teachers to the classrooms. They both offer a magnificent enviroment where learning and improving are the priority. The teachers support you in any matter, academic or personal. Furthermore I can say being in this school has changed me for the better. The people are very kind and generous. We learn explicit values such as trust, respect and responsibility. Everybody knows each other and treat each other as family. For we are a small high school with less than 400 student.
