South Shore Vocational Technical High School Reviews
Throughout my four years at South Shore Vo-tech, I've enjoyed my experience for the most part. The teachers and faculty at the school are great at what they do. The academic advisors always lead you on the right path and the teachers teach their subjects very well that the students can understand the topic and do well in the class. The sports and clubs offered at the school were a nice touch to the end of the school day that always gave a student to do to unwind and have a great time. However, the only thing I would change about the school is the board of discipline. The discipline was mostly on the unfair side and because of this, many students wouldn't care and would fight students they had issues with. The faculty in charge of student discipline would usually send off warnings more often and would suspend students for having possession of weed instead. The discipline of the school is awful but besides that, the school is great for getting ready for college!
It was an okay high school, it's primary focus was to teach students a trade and to learn regular high school things. Some of the teachers at the school were okay or not the best. For example I had a teacher who could not teach our class and most of us were failing or not keeping up. The school took no action whatsoever and did not take administration action on the teacher. The administration is also bogus, they do not believe the students and try to come up with bizarre solutions. For example, they attempted to put phones in the front of class, to stop students using their phone. The resources this school offered was little to nothing, there was barely any after school activities and barely had a good selection of sports teams to pick from. The culture of the school is a kind of depressing, they only hold one pep rally a year and the administration are the ones in charge. It seems the school is not in the students hand, and the administration try to control the student.
Is it the right school? Yes, the school is very open to any diversity or race. There is not much bullying or racism. The environment is positive and robust. The teachers help you out and make sure you know what you are doing. They built healthy relationships with all the students. The guidance counselors are always there when you need them. How are the students? Students life is, at times, unbearable. There are several clicks and closed in groups. The school overall is worth you coming. They have a smaller number of students — this response in having a stronger relationship with your class and teachers.
