Brooklyn Technical High School is amazing! Sure it is mainly Eastern Asian but, as a student there, I can vouch that the community is very diverse. There are many people of many different cultures, like Hispanics, Muslims, Jews, Jamaicans and so many more. Brooklyn Tech really has an amazing vibe. The teachers are really great. Many of them are really easy going and definitely know what they are teaching. Many of my own teachers, especially my AP Calculus BC teacher has put in so much work for his students to all receive the highest grade possible. Each teacher is super enthusiastic to teach and will care about the students beyond the classroom. I, myself, trust each teacher and am very comfortable talking to any of my teachers about anything. I see our relationship more as friends, but of course professor and student in the classroom. Students are definitely safe in the school. Deans and security guards are always on their toes and will confront anyone who is causing trouble.

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!
