Biotechnology High School Reviews

108 reviews
All Categories
Biotechnology is a great school to learn time management and STEM. Heavy work load with both group and solo projects. Heavy emphasis on Biology. Great friends and staff. Learned a lot about how to manage my time with school work, homework and after school activities. All the after school activities are student managed with a teacher as an adviser. Many of these activities have their meetings during the lunch hour, so time management is a plus. Lunch hour is interesting in that many things are happening at once - eating, of course, is priority, but many students will practice an instrument or play ping pong. Just a real "downtime" time. Biotech is a very safe school and a great honor system. You don't have to lock your locker and you can leave your computer out, walk away from it , come back hours later, and it's still there, untouched. Overall, a great school to excel in as well as a very safe, secure environment.

If you love science and are looking to pursue a career in this field, Biotech is the perfect place to go to high school. The science teachers are so knowledgeable, approachable, and truly care for their students—and the same goes for most of the teachers as well. Although school spirit does lack due to the limited grade-wide events, students are definitely more collaborative than competitive. In addition, the lab facilities are state-of-the-art, especially the biology and tissue culture labs.
Teachers and fellow students are very nice and understanding. Students are very trustworthy, no one ever needs to lock their locker or be worried about thievery. There is a great community created with fellow students. You learn to support and lean on each other.
The administration is constricting. Little freedom is given to students. It is said that students can create clubs and organization, but proposed clubs are neglected by the administration. Most get closed down.
Little to no art/music in the curriculum. All art/music in life at BTHS is led by the students. All there is is an Arts and Entertainment club. Additionally, there is only ONE art related field trip.

Also, food is not that great, but it could be worse.

Upside, the bathrooms are REALLY nice
