I absolutely love Brooklyn Technical High School. While many dislike their high school experience, I feel that this place was where I learned to develop as a person. I learned to become braver and gain vital speaking skills. Through Tech, I was able to learn how to communicate with adults and others around me. I will carry these lessons with me for the rest of my life. Though I have had an amazing experience with this school, one change I would make would be improving parent involvement. Increasing involvement with parents would allow them to become more aware of what is going on. The school is also composed of many minority students, whose parents may not necessarily speak English. It is important for them to be able to reach out to their parents about college help. Overall, this school has taught me so much about my community and myself, I hope other students are able to experience the same!
Review Brooklyn Technical High School
Teachers were very talented. I had this one teacher named Mr. Arjun for precalculus and algebra two/trigonometry. He was amazing. All math and science subjects in general are very strong. I have never had a bad teacher for any math or science class. Also, the school offers majors to choose from. You can pick anything from architecture to computer software to political studies to aerospace engineering! It is truly amazing.
Brooklyn Tech is known for its decades of academic success. Lots of bright minds and hard working students attend this so it's no wonder that there is a lot of competition. The expectation bar is set high from the minute you walk into the school making it demanding. At first, it may seem overwhelming but there is support and guidance to help you through. You also get to meet a slew of students that are hungry for knowledge and has a globally concerned mind!
