Institute of Technology at Syracuse Central Reviews
Rating 3.7 out of 5 30 reviews
The Institute of Technology at Syracuse Central is the high school that I have attended since I was a freshman in 2016. The school is very open and inclusive with the interaction between students and teachers. The teachers are really adamant on trying to give students the supplies they need, wether thats for college or going straight into the real world. We get a real feeling that the teachers care and invest much time and effort in us. We are very diverse and even have many multicultural events during the year. There are many academic opportunities and a variety of career paths available to all of the students. I was enrolled in the Automotive Technology CTE program at ITC and it was a very good experience. There were some unforeseen disturbances and hinderances to the program throughout the years, but I still got the education I desired out of the school.
I have been a student at ITC for over 4 years. I love the small setting of the school; this helps create a closer between students and teachers. For students who are interested in Media, Computer Engineering, Culinary, and Automotive, this school is perfect for you. The only change I hope to see in my school is the implementation of more rigorous courses to academically challenge gifted students.
I love the school atmosphere. It's very nice and clean. We have lots of programs for everyone. I wish to see maybe a bigger place for new students and programs
Parent involvement is important. You have to continually check in to make sure that you are on track with there being so many different program at the school, some of the requirements are different. Be proactive.
My experience at the Institute of Technology at Syracuse Central was rather interesting. Its fairly new facility, therefore it has a lot of great classrooms, computer labs etc. It's a small school so you will be very focused. There is barely time to get caught up in drama because everyone knows everyone. They offer a lot of great programs such computer science, media and communication , culinary arts and many more. The staff is very kind and personable to their students. Teachers have very flexible hours. Most will be available after school everyday or during lunches. I would like the climate of the school to change a bit. It's an academic driven school but having a bit more of inclusion would be great.
I did not like my child's Principal at I.T.C. She did not make eye contact, and she was in a hurry to get rid of us. She was seriously condecending and acted like she was a far superior human being. She was very uptight, nervous, anxious, whatever; she always seemed to be in a hurry to go nowhere. My child's other Principals were far superior to her.
I enjoyed my four years here. I got all the help I needed when preparing for college. The staff is very involved. The extra programming help was also supportive. The teachers took time to help when I needed it.
The institute of Technology overall is a good school by itself , but the P tech program is also a great program for upcoming freshmen. The school has a small class size which teachers will be able to give more attention to those who need it.
ITC is a fantastic school. I couldn't of made a better decision. Academics are great, as well as teachers and students. Most classes are small, and everyone knows each other for the most part. ITC is great for students who want the best education there is, and for students who want their needs met.
Book club was very fun creative and educational at the same time when coming to reading improving skills.
This school go above and behind for there students and teachers give there all.
Alot of the teachers helped me when help was needed and they pushed me to go above and behind to make the hard worker I am today.
There are very diverse groups of students. Lesbian, Transsexual, Bisexual, Gay; we have it all. There is no open opposition towards LGBT students. And I say open to mean that I have never seen discrimination of that kind. Mostly all students at my school are minorities and it is somewhat diverse. There isn't much peer pressure but not many students participate in illicit activities.
The school is not as up to par with its bullying response as it should. A friend of mine was in an abusive relationship and did pretty much nothing to help her. The security guards are friends with the students so its easy to get away with things. The metal detector security checks are a joke; people have snuck in knives, drugs, and other things. The nurse will give you an ice pack and call it a day, plus she's rarely in. Luckily there aren't many fights or other violent situations.
There are various clubs with a small amount of students taking part in each but some receive more attention than others.
I've had both good times and bad times at this school. But the bad times have only been with other students, and those situations never escalated. The school is unique because of its small size, all teachers actively try to get to know their students better.
Most are very attentive to their students and treat all of them equally. Very few act the exact opposite, not much different from any other school.
