Information Technology High School Reviews

A small school, but a very friendly environment.

Although some few teachers are not that good at teaching and are really mean, most of them are very nice and caring. Some teachers really want the best for their students.

The whole school is very diversed. Most students are very nice. I have not experience or seen any serious bullying or fighting for the last 4 years.

The restrooms are very not clean.

The CTE program is just amazing. Whether it is Web Design or Video Production, students have the oppotunity to learn skills that can get them a real job and the school actually help every student in this program to get paid internships. I am currently in my second internship already.

Information technology has come a long way since I was a freshman, They have increased the number of AP classes and got some really good teachers. Overall I had a good experience however the school is not very clear to freshman with it's CTE program which I learned the hard way because my CTE program, Apple, was cut. This is and the national honor society are many of the cons of this school because the national honor society was really a big mess and very few people are graduating with NHS. The friends you make here however will be in everyone of your good memories when you look back through your time at this school so I do recommend you give it a chance.
My experience in Information Technology High School wasn't the greatest and neither the worst. I've been attending this high school for three years now and to sum most it up is I'm comfortable here. I've made great friends, met amazing teachers who have pushed me to higher levels and learned yet more on subjects I expected less off. I have great relationships with faculty here and everyone is treated with upmost respect and equality. This is a small school that is yet developing, but based on the limitations this school has budget-wise, I know there can be so much more added here. I honestly enjoy being here, I feel at home with people who aren't crazy, fight-picking nor reckless. Maybe it's not a specialized high school or any top high school in the 30 district, but I really like how this school is growing and becoming better day by day. I feel the positive vibes in the atmosphere here.
