Joseph P. Keefe Technical High School Reviews
I think overall it's a great school for a lot of different students. It's extremely diverse and has some really amazing people. They have so many different level courses to choose from and there is certainly some teachers that will change your perspective on school. Something I love that isn't for everyone, is there isn't pressure to go to college. If you do decide to go to college they will help you every step of the way, but are very understanding if college isn't your path. My biggest concern at this school is the administration. They often don't listen to students complains about bullying or harassment by other students or even teachers and instead they discipline those who vape and drink. Although both are issues, I think that the bullying and harassment are something that are often overlooked and not dealt with appropriately. I think this school could really improve if they began taking students feedback more often and incorporating it into different elements of the school.
I love Keefe Tech! They set you up for success and you graduate with a simple knowledge on what you might want to do in the future. Even if you don't pursue your trade path, you always have something to fall on when times get tough. The teachers and very helpful and the environment is very welcoming. Its a great school for students wanting to learn more!
While this school is quite good for teenagers looking to develop industry skills (such as web development, computer repair and troubleshooting, and metal fabrication), its primary drawback is the lack of adequate enough preparation for college on an academic level. Students aren't challenged on an academic level as strongly as they would be in a regular high school - however this is to be expected, as the school is more focused on vocational learning, halving the time spent on academic studies. Ultimately, if you, as a middle school student, are looking to go to college in the future (if you've even thought about it at this point), it may be in your best interests to keep to your local town high school. However, should you find yourself more interested in investing yourself into developing skills that could land you a decent job in your industry of interest while still in high school, Keefe Tech isn't all that bad of an option.
