A Maceo Smith New Tech High School has gave me a full plate of joyful memories. The beginning of the 2019 year, we transferred to Barack Obama Male Leadership Building at B.F. Darrell. Of course, I missed our old building, but I was ready for all the great upcoming experiences and memories that I was going to be able to share at our new building. Attending two years at Maceo and two years at B.F Darrell have been a long journey. My principal's journey, Jameile Choice began when the class of 2020 joined New Tech. Choice has seen us grow as individuals and as a class. He is one of the greatest principals that I have ever met. When I am in need of help, he is always their to give advice in order for me to be better than how I was the day before. He loves and cares for all his students as if they where his own. Till this day, every morning at New Tech feels like a new experience, there's never a dull moment.

The school is now named New Tech high school but I put A maceo because I dont think its in the system. New Tech has gave me hope before I attended the school I lived in a bad neighborhood filled with drugs and poverty. So New tech is a school of choice so they get applications from kids who do what to go to there home school and transform them into scholars. I was a very smart student I just needed a confidence boost and communication classes. New tech has made me into a creative open minded and complex scholar. I know how to Analyze information, Play the guitar,Create Animation,mange my finances,and may more things. New tech doesn't have sports but they make up for that by giving students a Family, Incredible learning experiences, and they also allow us to play sport for homeschool if there that important to us. While providing a day where we are allowed to pick our own schedule which means we can play sports,participate in tutorials,or Cook a meal if we want to .
When I first entered A.Maceo Smith New Tech High School, it was still new, but the teachers were amazing. I enjoyed how the teachers really pushed us to actually do something better with ourselves especially since we are a school in a low-income neighborhood. The outcome of attending this high school had a 99% college entrance rate with over $600,000 in scholarships from the graduating students.
