Ever since attending Philadelphia Electrical & Technology Charter High School, it has been nothing but encouraging and beneficial. The school offer enjoyable extracurricular activities, Honors/AP Courses, SAT/College Prep, Senior Privileges, Co-Op/Dual Enrollment programs, and is located right in center city! What could use some improvement is the actual building of the school and create sport teams.

I love that since Im a senior we get allot of attention with the college process and also the SAT process.I love that we have metal detectors now because I feel like safety is really important in my school especially because we are in the heart of the city and there is allot of traffic so it would be hard to get to a hospital easily. I also love the programs that my school offer since Im a senior. I have Co-op/Senior project and also I have a boat building class,where i actually build a boat which is cool. My school is a very excellent school if you really want something going for yourself after high school.
In my time in Philadelphia Electrical and Technology Charter School, it was not what I had in mind in terms of the school building and there are classmates that are troublemakers. The good things about them are the teachers I talk to, and times when the schedules could change that allow students to leave early or don't have school the next day. I felt that, for improvements, there should be another school building for the charter school to be in, additional resources that are updated for the classes, and additional school programs and clubs for the students.
