Even though I've only been at the school for two years so far, I have enjoyed it. There are many different options offered for academies and you can earn certificates in that field and work hands on with resources from that field. The majority of the teachers care about their students and help them do their best! Hopefully we see some more school spirit in the new campus and more sports :)

I love South Tech Academy. The school is very inclusive. We have all sorts of different clubs for different people. We have anime, Christian and gay-straight alliance club. This school does a great job of making sure all of its graduates will be able to support themselves after graduation. Every student by graduation will have industry certification. This school has 13 academies: Auto body, Auto Tech, Business Management, Cosmetology, Culinary, Digital Film, Graphic Design, Information Technology, Marines, Medical Science, Motorcycle, Music, Veterinary. I am in the Medical Science Academy and have received my CPR, domestic violence, HIV/Aids, certified patient technician and will be receiving 5 more certifications this year.
South Tech Academy is a very good school. I am a part of the medical program and they've prepared me to be able to leave high school and find a job easily. They take good care of their students. They have a very good medical program, this program has taught me a lot about nursing, I was even able to earn my CNA certification. The teachers there care for there students and want you to do your very best. We just got a brand new school that all the students are excited about. In the medical academy we get to work with patients and experience hands on education. They have incredible technological devices provided to students which help further them in their academies. We get to use medical equipment that is used in hospitals. Their best program is the LPN program which I am a part of. This years graduating class had a 100% pass rate for the LPN certification test. My teachers Ms.Moore and Ms.Sweeney have taught me a lot.
