New Technology High School thoroughly prepares you for the working world. From learning how to be a top-notch speaker to being able to connect what your learning to your everyday life, New Tech does a great job prepping students. The small, accepting atmosphere allows you to make lasting friendships and feel comfortable with the friendly teachers. However, if you can't stand group projects or presentations, this school is not for you.

My favorite part about New Tech is the fact that communication is a necessity in order to complete projects, as well as being a school that is centered around project-based learning. Although it may be a great school to go to, it still needs some improvement; an example of this is that the school itself needs more communication between the students and staff, as there are some decisions that may be a tad bit questionable in whether or not they were made by actual students.
New tech is a great place to learn communication skills and what it's like to work in a professional environment. The school is very small and you'll eventually know all of the students and teachers. The teachers at New Tech are all really personable and easy-going but will hold you to a higher standard than teachers at a traditional high school. The high standards you're held to can be very stressful and very rewarding at the same time.
