Overall good school. Classes move at a faster pace due to only having 4 classes a day at 80 minutes each period. Teachers are generally young but they all work hard at their job and you can tell they love what they do. The counselors at the school are amazing, they're really personal and always push students to do better. Student classwork is usually done on the school issued laptops, each student is assigned their own. High school students are allowed to take their laptops home. Art and music classes are not taught traditionally which is quite a bummer, I wish I could see more traditional ways in that department. Only one foreign language class is offered, Spanish, and I'd enjoy seeing more variety there. There are little to no after school activities. The school doesn't have their own sports team which honestly a problem. our sports department teams up with two neighboring schools in the district to create a sports team.
Review Pittsburgh Science & Technology Academy
I love this school! I was more than prepared for college because of the many opportunities given to apply, write essays, etc.
Overall, attending the Pittsburgh Science and Technology Academy has been an honor. The teachers are very dedicated to their professions, and are willing to help all of the students realize their goals in life. Through the unique course loads and opportunities provided to students, I also feel as though the majority of students are coming out college ready and prepared for any and all types of post-secondary ventures.
