Everything is awesome in Science & Technology academy. The teachers to students ratio is very low, so students can get the help they need. They don’t have their own sports team, but they do play along with Obama. Every student is given their own laptop, so students can learn more using technology and connect with teachers easier. The only improvement they need is space, but that’s a monetary issue. They don’t have the money to expand plus, it’s in the middle of a city. But all in all, it’s a really good school and if you’re in the area, this is the school you should go to.

SciTech is located in Oakland which allows students to connect through college life with field trips and attending lectures. Multiple college courses through Pitt are offered in the school to push intelligence and prepare students for college. The structure of most courses also goes against most high schools as the classes are usually semester instead of year long as they would be in college. Students can join two different activities for a quarter and sometimes even more depending on the teacher overseeing students. Many activities are student lead and offer opportunities to get involved in the community and outside of the school to promote social changes and expand learning.
