Medford Vocational Technical High School Reviews
Throughout my 4 years, I have really enjoyed myself. Because of the small size of the school, you grow very close to everyone. Not only the people in your grade, but also the people in the older and younger grades. The shop environments are great, and it's awesome seeing people be such good friends with each other, even after only knowing them for a relatively short time. The shops that are provided are great and all provide multiple oppertunties for the kids to obtain different degrees and licensure. The academic work is not hard, because the school is vocationally based. However, that does not mean that the teachers aren't great at what they do. I have met my favorite teachers I have ever had throughout my sophomore to senior years, and I have learned a lot through them, not only academically, but also socially. Also because the school is so small, the teachers get to know their students, and a lot of the time we are treated like friends, and it makes learning more relaxed, comfortable, and fun, especially for the kids who came to a vocational school because academic aren't their strongest aspect. The school administration has become a lot stricter since the new principal has come, but she has done a ton for the school, such as renovations, grants, expansion, oppertunties, and the bettering of the reputation. The best decision that I made was choosing the Voc. rather than choosing the High School.
Because it is such a small and close-knit school, kids that didn't even know each other freshman year become absolute best friends by senior year. Obviously, when it comes to drinking and smoking most kids do it on the weekends. When it comes down to it, whether it's in Lexington or Dorchester it happens. I've never seen a problem with peer pressure, and everyone is accepting of everyone, with the exceptions of a few people here and there. The High school however is probably a lot more accepting and open-ended than the Voke, however the younger classes at the Voke seem to be drifting away from the ignorance, which is great.
Because the school is vocationally based, a lot of students come here to be hands on and work. However, the academic teachers are great at what they do, and very experienced. Vocational academic teachers honestly seem to do a better job than normal teachers, as they understand that each student is different and do not all learn the same way. The work load is incredibly manageable and easy especially compared to the high school, but we are still challenged and still learn.
