My experience at Platt Technical high school was absolutely one of a kind. The academic side of the high school experience was challenging but, manageable because the staff truly cared about helping you learn the material. On the trade side of things, it was one of the most beautiful and necessary lessons I will ever go through in life. My instructors showed me what working would really be like in the real world. They were hard on the students because they wanted to crack open all of their potential. I've never been to another school where they cared so much about their students success in life. While the learning experience was wonderful the actual structure of the school is awful. The building is falling apart and needs to be rebuilt for the safety of everyone inside. I will never get another high school experience and I am so glad to say I wouldn't change a thing about mine.

Platt is a great school if you are really interested in a trade. For example you can go into Automatic, Electrical, or Carpentry. There are many choices you can choose from and all the instructors are very polite and friendly. Teachers for acedemics are also great and teach very well. The staff is very polite and there is always help if you need it. Safety is always number one because they want their students to feel safe and not injure themselves. There are so many activities you can join to get involved in the school and make new friends. Overall I do recommend going to this school.
What was great about attending Platt Tech for four years was the school environment. Everything from the staff that reminds you of your own family members, to interesting classes and trades that can please many different people. If I could change Platt Tech for the better I would remove all electronic based learning programs, such as Aleks, and I would make sure the school had a secure staff. Towards the end of my third year and all of my forth year more than half the teachers I had since my first day all transferred to other schools. Overall Platt Tech was a great experience.
