After being out of high school since 2016, I can say I’m still sentimental and full of regret on how much I took Hutch Tech for granted. The school spirit was the best in the whole city of Buffalo! The teachers cared and were fun too. I was exposed to all kind of people and personalities. I made friends that i still talk to as a junior in college. As former principal Cimato would say, “Cherish these years at Hutch Tech because you will miss it”.

Hutch Tech has been an overall fun experience and provides all the necessary needs for college. It's a diverse, fun and cultural community right in the heart of the city of Buffalo. The clubs, sports and extracurricular classes are all open to anyone in the school. The students that attend this school with me are all relatively decent and present a "Model Techtonian" behavior. I would definitely think about applying here if I were you!
I am a sophomore at Hutch Tech. Before entering this school, it seemed like a dream. I was only a middle school student so high school, to me, was the next big step. My first day at Tech was very different from what I had imagined. The principal, for example, was unlike the others, as she was more of a people person. Another aspect of the school which caused me to develop a liking was their seriousness in sports. Our school was known for having won against many others in our varsity's basketball, and football team. On the other hand, my experience at Tech was ruined by my lack of people skills, an attribute that distinguished me from my principal. An absence of friends destroyed my image on this school. However, that part of my experience did not affect me as much. To this day, the positive feedback I give people on this school outweigh the negative.
