I enjoy the diversity in Brooklyn Tech! You'll find students from different backgrounds and interest, broadening your social circle easily. To add on, the school offers a such a big variety of clubs and extracurricular activities that you're bound to find your niche somewhere. The only downside, however, is that the school's facilities are not up to par in a very inconsistent manner throughout. This involves lack of air conditioning in some rooms, broken bathroom doors, and vandalized staircases.

Brooklyn Technical High School is a great school that provides students with a rigorous college like atmosphere. The experience may be challenging, but at the end you will come out being well prepared for the future. The school has a great faculty always looking out for students and helping them to relieve some of their stress. There are also multiple extracurricular activities to cater everyone's preferences. Finally, your classmates and friends are like the icing on the cake that make this high school experience memorable!
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!
