During my time at Essex Tech I have had valuable exposure to issues that come with organizing a new administration. Only my CTE program, Horticulture, has one teacher where the other twenty five programs the school offers has two, one for each grade taught per cycle i.e sophomores, seniors/ freshman, juniors. Seeing this major issue needing a resolution my classmates and I are trying to provide a solution however it’s difficult to be recognized in a new administration with many other important concerns. In fact the new administration is affecting all aspects of school. There is truly a lack of communication between facility and student body which is spreading into sports and club management. Although, safety concerns are well maintained being that many CTE programs work with complicated equipment. My experiences and what I have learned has led me to the conclusion that once administration settles the school will transcend past expectations

Essex Tech has state of the art facilities and resources for students. The staff is very knowledgeable and approachable and take pride in the successes of their students. The best feature of Essex Tech is that students receive high quality, college prep academics, in addition to career training. This hands-on, career training experience gives Essex Tech students an advantage over other high school students in that they participate in field work relevant to their interests. This field work ties into academics and is also an opportunity to build a resume and network with local businesses and corporations.
My experience at Essex Technical High School was amazing. All of my memories and opportunities are from this school. The faculty and administration are so generous and helpful. Through the four years of this high school, there was drama, there was fights...etc. However, fights, drama and friend cliques are all part of high school in general. With that being said, Essex Tech does a very good job with accepting diverse groups. The student mentors and faculty are aware many student come from many different communities. They create mentoring games that helps create friends on the first day of school. Being accepted into this school is a privilege. This is the perfect opportunity to find out what you want to spend your future doing.
