Chicago Tech Academy High School Reviews

Chicago Tech Academy is very unique due to the opportunities you get because of it and within the walls of the building. In school we participate in power lunches which are essentially bringing different professionals to come speak about their pathways. This gives us the exposure we need in networking and being able to feel confident I. Asking questions to navigate for ourselves. Chicago Tech also offers us internships our junior and senior year of high school. The places we decide to intern at vary depending on the person. Being a student at Chicago Tech allows me to become more confident and allows me to understand that there are teachers that will go above and beyond to ensure every student feels like an individual and not just one out of the bunch.

The after school activities at this school are very helpful and disciplined. They're mostly disciplined because what you learn inside of the programs could be used outside of the program. For example, one of the after school program I'm in, Young Men's Leadership, teaches me how to become a better man and a leader as well. I feel as if this program is very beneficial to me because it has an effect on the choices I make and how I deal with problems that comes towards me. Another extracurricular activity I participate in is the basketball team. This helps me with my work ethic and reflects how hard I try to accomplish something. Discipline as well, on the basketball court and off of the basketball court.
The academics at this school is very unique from others. Our schedule switch every other day which we call an A day and B day. Every Friday we have a X day.On our A day We have two classes that are a hour-thirty minutes(1st and 2nd period), advisory(3A), lunch(3B), another hour-thirty minute class(4th period), and a 45 minute class(5th period) that we have both A days and B days. On our B days, its the same concept just different periods 6th and 7th period, 3A, 3B, 8th period, and 5th period. On our X days we go through all of our periods, but they're shortened to 45 minutes each.
