Some qualities of Harrisburg High School- SciTech Campus that i really like are they have all honors classes for there students, while students can also take college classes across the street and those credits can transfer over to the college they attend later in life. Also SciTech offers seniors to do Co-Op so students can go to work after they finish classes at school. Another thing that i admire about SciTech is that there high school graduate rate and college acceptance rate is 100% which tells me that my teachers want me to succeed and move on to bigger places in life

One thing I loved about my school is that it is a challenge, especially being a honors high school. I've honestly grew as an adult here because of the few teachers that actually cared about every individual student. Not only did I grow as a person but as a journalist. Which is all because my school offered me opportunities to take the following steps to achieve my educational goals. Sci tech has always been apart of Harrisburg university of science and technology and because our school is so invested I took the opportunity to take 2 semesters of classes at there university. Although, the only thing I would change about my school is our bathrooms and the class room sizes so that students could feel more comfortable being here for hours of their day.
Sci-Tech is high school to attend if you want to further your educational career, and John Harris is everyone else.The overall curriculum being taught in the school district is non-informational.The school district is under-funded and the teachers care more about the students then the parents.The school lunch at Sci-Tech is repetitive which means the food is being recycled.There is a lot of free time in that school which could easily be filled with projects.My favorite teacher was Holly Worful.Worful is a math teacher whom is tough on her students because she wants to instill the lesson on you.She is a loving lady whom pushes her students to succeed, not just in high school but also in life.My fav facility member was Sieta Achampong.My years of high school we had many different people who sat in the office,but she was a principal.She cared about the well-being of every students and choose to make a bond which ensures the student that she will be the role we need her to be.
