For the most part I enjoyed my time at BCIT. I learned a lot and made very good friends: the only thing I would complain about is how they dealt with my absences due to illness. My guidance counselor was new and he did not really understand how to handle my absences and communicate to my teachers. I received work sporadically and often out of order. I enjoyed the sports that I participated in. I was in the CNA program and I learned a lot from my teachers. I would definitely recommend the program.
BCIT medtech is a wonderful school, who tries its best. As all schools, it has it's flaws, but with that being said they have wonderful teachers who make school interesting and there is a very diverse group of students.
My experience with Burlington County Institute of Technology has been amazing. They provided me with a rich education in many subjects. With this school one is able to choose a career major that they will take for four years. I chose Sports Medicine as my career major. During this I was able to learn anatomy, physiology, kinesiology, orthopedics, rehab, nutrition, and prescriptive fitness. The school guidance counselors have also been amazing. They have provided me with important information regarding scholarships, colleges/university choices, extracurriculars, and more. Another amazing thing about BCIT is their size. The school doesn’t have too many students. Each class is no more than 30 students. You are able to build close relationships with classmates and professors. The school is also diverse. Overall BCIT has a vide array of opportunities to learn and prosper. I absolutely love my time here and know many of my peers feel the same way!
One thing I love about my school is that we have so many programs that are available for students to show off their creativity.
I personally have very good experiences there. I've met all of my friends there and I think that they do a really good job of making it easier to meet people since all of us are basically starting over.
Coming to Burlington County Institute of Technology, I had to leave my township school district and blend in with kids from districts and counties all surrounding Medford where the school is located. Upon arriving, I had med so many new people from different places and backgrounds. BCIT is not just a normal school; it is a vocational school where you can focus on a career and also prepare for college. BCIT had become my home; I became a member of the field hockey and softball teams, where I play varsity. I was sophomore class president, Vocationally Talented and Gifted in career and academics, ranked #3 in my class until I suffered a sport concussion, included in the top club of the school, and inducted into the National Technical Honor Society. This just goes to show how much BCIT has to offer and cares for the students success, as they care so dearly for mine. This school has changed my life; I could not imagine not enrolling here. It has made a positive impact to my teenage years.
One of the things that I like about this school is that there’s a friendly environment. Majority of us get along and everyone fits in!
I enjoy my school because the teachers are very nice and teach concepts to you in different ways. There is a club afterschool every week that helps you complete homework which is good too. Plus we use a lot of advanced technologies such as Chromebooks, robots in classes, smart tvs, etc
I enjoyed meeting new students from all over the burlington county area. I will like to see more diversity in this school because most students feel uncomfortable and its hard to help them.
This school is fantastic for students who want to get a head start on a career that they’ve already decided on. If you’re unsure, there’s potential to get stuck for 4 years doing something you don’t love. The school also has a much more intense demographic, as many of the students do not plan on attending college. This allows for much more antics and violence than the average high school.
At BCIT Medford, I felt like a lot of the teachers I had (mostly honors and AP level) were very understanding and good at their jobs. The student body over all is very welcoming, and I always felt like there was a place I belonged. Unlike many other high schools, there aren’t really any major cliques or popular groups. One issue, however, that this school has is a lack of communication. There have been many times in my high school career where I have received misguided information as a result.
I currently attend Burlington County Institute of Technology and the my classes I enjoy are shop and English. Some teachers are unreliable and immature as they mistreat their students based on their own preferences. The security guards are far too friendly with certain students who are always wandering the halls, but God forbid I try to walk down the hallway to use the restroom, I am always stopped and questioned as if I am a criminal trying to escape out of prison. The school lunch is far over priced food the poor quality food they offer. These are all reasons most kids in my shop tend to stay in the shop. This review doesn’t apply to all the adults in the building because the Honors and AP teachers are the kindest and most caring adults I have met at the school. The administration is good as well. But the security and some of the teachers are not suited to be around teenagers, and then express this very clearly with their behavior when dealing with teenagers at the school.
Everyone you meet becomes like family to you. Once you find your shop, you will find a family for life. The staff are so nice, and they greet you with a smile everyday.
To start, the administration won’t do anything unless you go straight to the principal. He has a very big heart and will make sure ever student is taken care of. I’ve seen little to be done about my very close friend’s altercations regarding his race. The block schedule stops any student from being able to transfer back to a district school in the middle of the year if wanted. They don’t even offer four levels of Spanish (only language that’s offered). They also make it hard for people to be in clubs in addition to sports, because they overlap. We don’t have a football team. The school is made so that the students can have a job directly after high school, so it makes sense that they just meet the minimum for most fields. I wish I knew what I was getting into before enrolling.
I have been active in extracurricular activities all four years of my high school experience. I volunteer in my community and have developed a good rapport with my fellow students at BCIT. I am attending the health occupations shop and intend to attend college upon graduation in year 2020 to pursue premedical studies to become a physician one day. BCIT is preparing me for success.
My experience at Burlington County Institution of Technology was interesting. It was like every typical high school, but had one variable that made it better than the rest. Which was the mutual relationship everyone shares with one other, to make themselves feel at home.
BCIT is supposed to be one school with two campuses but with the various differences between them, they might as well be two separate schools. I realize because of space and budget constraints, not every shop can be at both schools but the differences go beyond that. From different clubs and sports to even different dress codes.
