P.S. 304 - Hutchinson Central Technical High School Reviews

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”.

We are a family there at Hutchinson Central Technical High School. Academic is taken seriously and the school offers many AP classes. Many fun traditions there and lots of participants. There is something for everyone to do, no one is left out. The administration is wonderful, they’re always willing to help. Guidance counselors are so nice, will try their best to get what you need. The teachers are amazing, they know what they’re doing. Something that should be fixed is the consequences students get when they get in trouble. Some students disrespecting teachers and not following the rules happens every year. The school should not be lenient so students will take the rules seriously. Overall Hutch Tech is a great school that has so much to offer. I am a senior and will be leaving soon. These past years has been a great and fun experience. Wouldn’t go back to 8th grade and change Hutch Tech as my number one high school choice.
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!
