New Century Technology High School is a awesome school! Lots of dual enrollment opportunities, and lots of students resources. I am currently enrolled in New Century as a freshman. In this school, I am involved in JROTC and Cyber Security. The JROTC goal is to motivate young students into better citizens. The Cyber Security goal is to protect computers and servers.

Based on my sons experience at New Century. 100% Bully free zone! Not your typical freshman year per my son. He states upper classman are so friendly and helpful. In middle school my son had headaches and belly aches at least once per week due to peer stressors. This is his sophmore year at New Century and he is up early and raring to go! He loves school! Yes a sophmore loves to go to school. The principal and asst. Are very involved and promote a great learning enviroment! I love the weekly email from the councilor along with all the opportunities for the students. PTSA is excellent very much student oriented with the lunch hour classes they provide the students. The teachers are fantastic! Thank you!
Stress is really prominent here, especially when you're very grade-oriented, but overall, it's fantastic. I couldn't imagine going any where else around me and being happy. I had to make all new friends when I started as a freshmen, and it didn't take long for me to find a circle I'm still a part of today. People of all grade levels are approachable and friendly, and I've had to say goodbye to seniors every year. Most teachers are incredible and so friendly and caring that they're better therapists than the one we have. I wouldn't trade a single experience or class I've had at New Century for anything else in the country.
