Alliance Susan and Eric Smidt Technology Highschool definitely exceeded my expectations in terms of what it did for me. After attending there I can confidently say that I am very much college ready and I would recommend it to any kid seeking a good school to attend. The staff are amazing, the student body are all so close and friendly, and the teachers are all so amazing at their jobs that I can guarantee that any student attending that school will leave a distinguished individual with more knowledge of the outside world than most other college students.

Smidt Tech is a great hands on learning environment. They care for one to succeed in life and give the resources needed. Smidt tech has taught me to get out of my comfort zone and ask for help when needed. The teaches really care about students. If they see one struggling they don’t hesitate to have a one on one interaction to solve the problem. The school prepared me for college. I’ve learned how to format my papers, use google effectively, and work more independently.
What I like about an Alliance College-Ready Public School is that it’s a nonprofit charter management organization, is to open and operate a network of small high-performing 9-12 in historically underachieving, low income communities in California that will annually demonstrate student academic achievement growth and graduate students ready for success in college. The mission of Smidt Tech is to operate a small high performance school equipped to prepare each student to enter and succeed in college. The primary strength of Smidt Tech is the highly accountable educational model guided by our five Alliance core values, which include:
1. High expectations for all students
2. Small personalized schools and classrooms
3. Increased instructional time
4. Highly qualified principals and teachers
5. Parents as partners
