Staten Island Technical High School Reviews

What I enjoyed about my school was its college readiness and opportunity in educational growth. From college classes, to academic counseling the school always gave ways and methods towards a better high school education, and to prepare us for our next step in life. These methods varied from a library embedded with countless books for the SAT, Ap exams, and more. Also tutoring was provided, as well as review sessions given by teachers. While these were huge factors to the school being one of the nation’s top high schools, I believe The culture of the school was what was most like able. The school was able to make you feel accepted by everyone, and to accept everyone. This was done through clubs, events, and through assemblies that helped students understand one another. For me, that was what was best about the school, their ways of preparing me for college on a social scale, as well as for my future interactions with people.

The guidance counselors at this school don't really do their jobs. The only opportunities they present to us are ones that aren't even applicable. I had to find out about decent opportunities relating to my future field of study from an email forwarded from another school. In addition, they don't offer us as many classes as I would like to take because our school is small. In my opinion, th classes are too easy and not challenging enough. Compared to Brooklyn Technical High School and Stuyvesant High School, we have nothing. We don't have enough funds (or the funds are going elsewhere) for things that other schools can afford such as nice marching band uniforms.
First of all the school structure is a U-shaped building the size of a middle school. There is no swimming pool and there are only four floors. The locker rooms, cafeteria, hallways and auditorium are very small and crowded which leads to a bunch of other problems like tardiness which can lead to detentions. Another problem would be the commute to get to school. Half the school takes the public bus s79 to school and there is always a constant problem of pushing and shoving and complaints. On the bright side, you can get a really good education. All the teachers are top-notch and somewhat reasonable. Fights and drugs are unlikely and there are a bunch of extracurricular activities. However, the students are highly competitive which means you have to work very hard to keep up.
