I believe that High Tech High School is a great school where I can truly express myself while also feeling comfortable. High Tech offers unique academies to choose from such as the biomedical science, culinary arts, computer designing, Dfab, robotics, and my interest...performing arts. It's important for students to identify their skills and specialize in an area of interest in preparation for college where we must declare a major.
There is always be something different to experience and enjoy, especially in performing arts such as a musical, coffee house, dance showcase, volunteer work, etc. It's been enjoyable.
There are so many of different types of people from different backgrounds, cultures, and communities. It has allowed me to be more open-minded, adaptable and accepting of all people...which made me a better human being!

A school that introduces students to many opportunities, High Tech helped me not only find who I am as a person, but made me realize the hidden passion I had for the major that I am pursuing now! With such diversity, High Tech successfully combines students of all culture, race, religious beliefs, etc., and introduces students to a safe and accepting environment. Being a student of High Tech has prepared me for what is to come and has me excited for my future!
High Tech High School just got a new building in Secaucus, much bigger than the old campus at North Bergen. Along with new building came with the loss of prestige: in order to satisfy the capacity of the bigger new building, the administration began accepting more students with standards lower than before. However, with the acceptance of more students the diversity of students has greatly increased. There are a handful of great, passionate teachers that will teach their respective subjects to the next level. The food is great, best of all Hudson County. Administration and guidance have been controversial lately. The resources that are offered in school and after-school are great.
