No more school computer lab where students worked and printed assignments?? No access to computer/printers. Wood tech equipment hasn’t been moved. New big building plenty of updates. The culture has changed in a bad way. They're trying to get more students to fill the building but these students aren't the best quality causing trouble. The food is still good but long lines that take ALL period long. Bring snacks or you will starve waiting. Guidance was divided by wings DFab got the BAD batch Brennan isnt good no student support, no guidance, lacks communication. NO FAIR. We want Nardiello back. They frown on parent involvement. Isn’t the school it used to be. Only the results of HS graduates with college offers & scholarships can truly determine if this school/guidance provides students the resources to get accepted into the best colleges and obtain the highest scholarships. Severely Lacks student guidance and communication.

High Tech High School would always be very close to my heart. This school gave me the opportunity to build, not only, connections but also my resume. This is an environmental friendly school, with many amazing options such as Farm to Table, recycling, and having solar panels!
I loved my time in High Tech. The culture they created in that school while I attended was truly unlike any other. It was accepting, it was open minded, it was caring. Everyone knew everyone and cared about each others well beings. We were treated like adults; teachers respected students just as students respected teachers. The food couldn't be compared any other schools, it was amazing. We had the utmost freedom which allowed us to be expressive and to be involved in our school community. My senior year, the year the school decided to move to their new building in Secaucus, New Jersey, was when things started to change. The culture has changed and not in a good way. Because the school building is bigger, they're trying to get more students to fill it; however these students aren't of the best quality which leaves room for trouble and conflict. The isolation of the classrooms, majors, students, and teachers also poses an issue.
