My experience at this school was excellent! The teachers were very helpful & overall was a good school. It was a very diverse, safe, and educational. My years here at ecta went amazing. Every time I needed help all the teachers were there for me. The kids all got along, there was never a problem between students at all. I believe this school is one of the best school's here in the country! The food they serve is good, there is never a problem with the food. The best thing about this school is the programs we have here which include, culinary, marketing, education, auto, and much more. These programs have really helped many of the students a lot. I myself am In the culinary program, which helped me a lot because I learned not only how to make food but how the food industry works as well. Overall, East Tech Career & Technical Academy is truly an excellent school!

ECTA is a very amazing school because they have incredible teachers and it’s a great educational environment. They have programs where people can get a taste of their future careers like IT, culinary, automotive, medical, education, and many other programs. It’s a great magnet school! The only thing I would change would be little less homework but it’s nothing students can’t handle.
I like how East Tech is a safe environment to be around. The school is diverse with many different clubs. The school helps prepare students by offering programs which provides a hands on experience. The programs sets a good structure on what a student might want to do in the future. Plus, AP/Dual credit classes are provided to prepare students for college. I would like to see improvement on the air conditioning and heater because the classrooms would be too hot or too cold. The students would get distracted by the room conditions. They would have to deal with the room conditions or move to another classroom. The school also needs to work on managing teachers. Teachers would get fired or quit and multiple substitutes have to replace the teacher. This causes chaos to students because the substitutes would start teaching on different material which confuses students.
