High Tech High North County has been beneficial to me, but isn't beneficial to all. This school's workload isn't as heavy as public schools since it's a public charter school, but that doesn't mean it's easy. Being a project based school, students are constantly doing research about different topics while doing regular school work at the same time. The difficulty level depends on the student and what they're capable of. Every class offers challenge options for student who need more to do.

What I like about High Tech High North County is that the students are able to feel comfortable in being themselves without there being judgment towards them. The teachers are also very supportive of the students' education and are willing to make specialized accommodations to academics if necessary for the student. The great thing, in addition to the good accepting environment, High Tech High North County does is prepare the students for what will be experienced once we go into the workforce in particular to our career. We are better prepared for what will be encountered after high school graduation because we will get experience before we graduate high school.
During my time at High Tech High I have learned a lot and gained lots of skills. In fact I have gained a new confidence when speaking to strangers and overall presentations. I have really benefited from the small diverse classes, but I would like to see some more attention payed to the sports programs! Overall its a fun engaging place to learn.
