Overall, Scitech is a very great school. It may not be the best in everyone’s opinion but I’ve been having a pretty good experience! The administrators make you feel very comfortable and everyone there accepts you for you. What I would like to see change is the lack of beneficial classes. I believe there should be more classes that prepare you for the real world because from what I’ve heard its not easy.

I liked how no one discriminates against one another and how everyone respects each other as in no bullying. I liked the environment majority of teachers set up in the classrooms, as in they made the classroom a safe environment where you can always ask your teacher for help and they will give it when needed as well as you can always ask questions without the need to be judged by other classmates. The teachers give us room to grow without the feeling of judgement. Sci-tech is an overall good school, the students however sometimes need to be disciplined well enough so there is not as many physical altercations as well disrespect with teachers. What needs to be changed is the enforcement of the rules for students.
The experience I had at this school was amazing. I always thought I wasn't going to do good but I did. My teachers and counselor helped me achieve my goals and thought me not to give up easily. With there help and because I didn't give up I had amazing grades and participated in the program of dual enrollment which I really liked. I feel like the school does a really good job on helping students but maybe they should reach out to more kids like they did to me to do the program. A side from that, the school has done an amazing job with students and I'm glad it was my first choice of high school because now I am proud to call my self part of the cyber cat family class of 2020.
