Sheridan Technical Center - High School Reviews

This school is overall has been an amazing experience not only for me but also for my friends as well. Over the past two years, I have gotten to meet a variety of teachers with their own methods of teaching that have brought me to where I currently am today. The office staff are very responsive to the needs of the students and are willing to aid you in any school related issues. In my opinion, the guidance counselors truly make the school what it is. The guidance counselors are always there to help students, parents, and staff when needed. The guidance counselors help students find sources for scholarships, volunteer hours, and college applications. Without the current guidance counselors, the student body definitely wouldn't be who they are and wouldn't be going in the direction they are head in their futures. The lunch options are always fresh and range in variety. All around, this school is an amazing choice for students, parents, and staff.

I am currently in my freshman year of high school at Sheridan Technical High. I am already impressed by the way the school is structured and maintained.
Regarding safety, Sheridan is one of the safest schools in Broward County. The administrators take the time to go over procedures to every class in each grade. The students are always required to wear their ID badges. Since the beginning of the school year, there hasn’t been any fights, or dangerous crime activity. There is no school I feel safer going to than Sheridan.
One thing Sheridan can improve on, the extracurricular activities. Activities like dances and sports are not a real priority.
I'd say the best aspect of Sheridan are the teachers. The teachers I have for first term have great class management skills. Work assigned challenges students to think and come up with innovated solutions.
If you are the type of student who likes to be challenged and you strive for success in your career, Sheridan is the place to go.
I like that all classes are honors courses unless you want to take a higher course level. It is rigorous and keeps you on your toes. You are groups of peers of your intellectual level and are focuses on academics, while still having extracurricular activities. You are provided with your own computer for the 4 years you attend the school. I do not like the fact that sometimes AP classes are pushed so hard to the point that you are forced to take them. I also do not like that the 11th grade guidance counselor doesn't take your feelings or opinions into account sometimes. However, in general, Sheridan Tech is a good school
