New Technology High School Reviews

New Tech is the perfect school to prepare you for the real world. There you learn public speaking, how to do taxes and how to prepare for colleges and such. The school is a project base learning. This means we work together on projects in a group and we work with community partners to create a final product that includes the content of what we learn. It could improve on its food quality but that goes for most schools.

I'll admit, the primary reason I put my name in the drawing for New Tech was because they allowed cell phones and other personal devices, unlike the other schools in my district. What I found when I got there was so much more than that. The teachers really care about your success and you as a person. They put forth their best efforts in teaching you not just the relevant material, but also real world skills, like working with others in a group, how to do public speaking without collapsing from nervousness, and how to produce a final product worth presenting and being proud of. I have met many great people in my time here, and I have had opportunities that wouldn't be there for me if I had gone elsewhere for my education.
I have 2 children attending New Tech High. This school is founded & based on integrity, personal character, accountability & professionalism. This school is not only preparing our children for higher education but for REAL LIFE. Is this school perfect? No, neither is real life & that's the type of environment that I want my children to be able to thrive in. These HS kids will be out of our homes in a few short years, grades won't be the key to help them survive. Knowing how to treat people with respect, being able to communicate, work alone and as a team (even if you don't like the people your in the group with), being able to apply what you've learned, solve problems, present solutions, be accountable.. these are the tools that will drive success & happiness.
