I can confidently speak that my time at Belton New Tech has allowed me to grow and obtain the skills and experiences necessary to be prepared for the next step in life. The most notable attributes to my school is the culture between peers, the student and teacher mentor ship, and the resources they’ve provided us to aid our learning. We are recognized as “A No Place for Hate” school. Not only do students get a long together, but the teachers truly mold a great learning environment. New Tech is kin to a large family, and as a family I’ve known for the last four years of my schooling, I know they provide the best they can in their students learning. The only downfall is our lack of facilities. It’d be great for the community of our school if we were growing our facilities!

I love my school. My school is hands on project based learning. We are taught through projects rather than worksheets. Through these projects, we develop real world skills like public speaking, working well in a group, innovation, and problem solving. The culture of my school is amazing as well. The teachers actually develop relationships with the students and show that they care about us as a person and not just a student. Overall, New Tech is one large family encouraging and preparing students for the real world.
New tech's environment is unlike anything I have ever seen before. Everyone is extremely friendly, open to new ideas, and the sense of community is stressed for any incoming freshman or upperclassman at this school. It focuses on Project Based Learning (PBL) in order to prepare its students for college and then the real world.
