I love this school. Along with its strong academic environment, this school offers many vocations or "shops" to students. Students learn a trade/technical skill while in high school. Students can learn how to be electronics technicians, plumbers, and everything else in between. The opportunities at this school are endless!

Everyone is so welcoming and polite there! Being a school where you have to apply to get in, keep up good grades and dedicate yourself to learning, you can tell both teachers and student are passionate and excited to be there everyday. Teachers stay late hours everyday and some even come in on Saturdays. They make it an enjoyable environment full of endless opportunities and experiences.
Graduated there from the IT program. I had a fantastic time there as I made friends who I became close with. Though, I think there needs to be more emphasis on encouraging students to persue shops like IT and engineering since there not widely chosen shops. People don't know exactly what they're missing out on. The field is booming and I feel as if BVT doesn't make so much of an effort to encourage kids to persue IT and Engineering or similar since they're seen as "too nerdy".I'm now in college studying computer science, if it wasn't for being in IT I would be lost!
