Hi I'm Samantha Hernandez I am a junior at Alliance Susan & Eric Smidt Technology High School AKA Smidt Tech School. I've been attending this school since I started High School so if I didn't like I would've moved but obviously it's really great. But the best thing about my school, that it is a college ready school they prepare us and they even push us because they want us to succeed especially on our own. At Smidt Tech we have so many opportunities but if you really want them you have to fight for them. Life is like a competition and Smidt Tech is preparing us realistically.

Alliance Susan and Eric Smidt Technology High School has such a supportive and motivating administration staff. They genuinely do care about the students and how they're going to get to college.
What I liked about this school is that there was a great counseling team, I had a great principal and I knew who to go to when I needed to talk to someone
Smidt Tech has a hardworking dedicated staff. The school is well organized and clean. It ensures not only students and parents that their children are being set on the right path to success. There is no doubt that Smidt Tech will not satisfy the needs of hard working students.
I grew up in Washington, DC but had recently arrived in California, Los Angeles fresh out of Freshman year High School. Ready to begin anew for Sophomore year the only problem was when I got to LA, I couldn't find any school that fit any of my needs until I came across Alliance Smidt Tech. When I first arrived all the staff were kind especially the students on the first day, I made many friends even though it's hard for me to make friends. I immediately fell in love with the school by the end of the week and they have helped me grow into a beautiful butterfly while continuing to support me through every step of the way. Whatever I needed they provided the only thing that I would change is the food because on some occasions the food is great but most I would rate it a 3/5.
Ridiculous excuse for a high school. . .
Very average students in a very small and average school. Very many ill mannered students. The average SAT score for students who attend this school is around 1050, which is terrible. Gives students false hope by severe grade inflation and laxness of staff.
My experience with Alliance Susan & Eric Smidt Technology High School was incredible. Smidt Tech helped me because who I am today. They changed me, they made me become a better person. Alliance, not only helped me, they helped many generations of students. They do good to us, show us what's right and what's wrong. Make us see what's ahead of us in the future. Alliance Susan & Eric Smidt is an amazing school. It is placed in a good community, in Lincoln Heights. If I could change Smidt Tech, I would change the building, I would want to build another bigger building for other students can get the same opportunity as everyone else and like myself. Alliance Susan & Eric Smidt, changed the best of me and made me be prepeared for what's ahead of me.
Teachers, staff, and students really demonstrate the endorsement of teaching and helping to teach others. I highly recommend to other students to really understand what they expect from themselves, then be applied to their teachings. This is key to Alliance Susan & Eric Smidt Technology High School.
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
I only spent half of my junior year and all of my senior year there, but I loved it. The counselors were great and they definitely helped me with anything I needed. The AP classes definitely prepare you for college classes. I loved playing sports and they helped me with the stress from school. They could improve the lunch and the lunch area.
My time at Smidt Tech has always been a pleasure, because the staff and the students both know how to communicate well with each other. There's always a sense of unity within the students and staff, almost as if they're family. The school never looks down upon you for being less than some of the other kids, and they certainly don't let you fail when you feel like you want to give up. Smidt Tech by far is the best high school in the Lincoln Heights area. They have high graduation rates, astounding counselors, and most importantly, an approachable staff.
Where to begin about this amazing school is hard, but I'll start with community. The community makes the kids feel safe and secure, everyone around is nice, helpful, and very respectful. Now the teachers they are great, they help every child success an graduate high school. When a student is struggling to focus or understand a subject there are many resources they can take advantage of to better help there education, such as the teachers there. For example, I was struggling in my AP Chemistry class so my teacher held an after school one on on tutting with me every Monday so that I can have a better understanding of chemistry and it helped a lot or I was able to pass that class in the end. The atmosphere of this school is just awesome and great hopefully I can come back in the future and thank my teachers and staff.
Being a Smidt Tech student has been one of the best experiences of my life. School staff and administrators are extremely supportive and are always ready to help when needed. I never felt threatened or insecure and always felt safe when arriving to school. Being greeted with a smile from the principle himself makes me feel appreciated, which is something that other high school students can't say for themselves. I can truly and happily say that im proud of being part of the grey wolf family/pack.
I like about Alliance Susan & Eric Smidt Technology High School was the fact that it felt like we were family.

The school really does prepare you for college. The teachers are there to help whenever you need help. It's not small but it's also big so it's a great environment to be in. Not only do the teachers help but as well as the counselors. They really helped me with college stuff throughout my senior year.
Alliance Susan & Eric Smidt Technology High School is such a great school. The reason why I believe this is because this school offers so many opportunities. If you need help with speaking in public, reporting an unknown problem, help with grades, etc the counselors there are so helpful and trustworthy. You can speak to them about any problem your dealing with and they'll help you out in a postivive way. Everyone you see there uses a strong and appropriate vocabulary.The moment you step in the doors you instantaneously feel the positivity and love roaming in the air as well as getting welcomed with the most successful and loving people.Every student has gained a positive and healthy friendship with a teacher. The teaching is understandable and helps you challenge yourself beyond your capacity. I definitely would recommend this high school to others students and share how of a positive environment it will benefit the parents child's .
Smidt tech is awesome. The only issue people seem to have is the size, however, I find it beneficial for the reasons that our counselors are able to help us more, and teachers are less worried about calming down the class and can focus on what individuals/ small groups need.
