I feel more at home at school than I ever do at home. Students and faculty make the environment a more accepting place. Everyone here is helpful and motivating. When life is bad at home, the teachers truly care and accomodate to your home life (depending on the teacher). I'm really happy I got to have my high school experience such a comforting and supportive one, I feel very fortunate and wish that all students could go into college feeling as ready as students from High Tech High International.

My experience at High Tech has overall been very good. The projects I've done are engaging and I was actually interested in the disciplines we were studying. A majority of our sports teams go to CIF and Girl's Volleyball made it to the state semi-finals. I would definitely recommend outside tutoring for the SAT because we don't do a lot of test prep. People are super friendly though, and you can make friends with pretty much anyone.
High Tech High is not like other public high schools, the teachers care and support you throughout the four years. They respect, understand and take under consideration your problems. They want to help you get into your dream school, by providing SAT practice, essay workshops, how to read finical package, communication and a supporting hand when things get ruff.
