Tech is an amazing school that gives students the opportunity to learn a trade before graduating high school. There are so many opportunities for AP and honors classes, and programs that range from floral and landscaping to cosmetology and animal science, sports medicine and nursing. We have a wonderful mix of students and awesome staff to learn from each day!

I was in the Food Preparation and Management program at Tech. Absolutely loved one of the main Chefs, Chef Davis! Because there is a restaurant in the school, students get really hands-on experience in dealing with serving food and customer service. But one of the drawbacks to this program is that out of my class of 15, there were only four including myself that really enjoyed the industry and wanted to actually make it a career. The other students were just there for an easy grade. Most of the teachers at tech are really good teachers and care about seeing their students succeed. One thing I really appreciated about Tech is that at the end of the day everyone is one big happy family, from freshmen all the way up to seniors. But overall a really good school with really great programs, would recommend!
Harford Tech has a great, attentive staff! Teachers are awesome. There is so much pride and school spirit.
Technical areas offered, students are very involved.
