Howell Cheney Technical High School Reviews
Cheney is not for the fainthearted. I attended the school from the 9th-12th grade. The academics are of course top notch and prepare you decently for college courses, but you should study HARD to keep up everything. Only a handful of teachers are more than accommodating and open to meeting with students during their free time. You must take the initiative to do well at Cheney, though. You can't be embarrassed to ask questions when you're confused. Sensitivity has no place in the classroom, or at Cheney in general. The school has a very competitive atmosphere- particularly when applying for colleges. That being said, students are mostly amicable. Sports are big Cheney, and we generally do ok.
I don't really like academics in school but I do really like the Diesel program at Cheney Tech! No other technical high school in the state offers Diesel. The diesel program does the bus inspections for our school other technical schools in our area and we also worked side by side with the National Guard here in CT; working on thier humvees, trucks and generators. I've learned a valuable trade and have gotten some great experience through the program. I also did work based learning where I was placed as a diesel mechanic at a local shop since I was a junior. So, I'm already working in my trade and will have a full-time job when I graduate.
Shop is great! Academics can be good, but on the most part not so much. Teachers aren't nice and understanding except for a select few. It would be nice to have teachers that remembered what it was like to be a teenager.
