Staten Island Technical High School provides students with many opportunities through rigorous courses and clubs celebrating diversity. Students take Russian for three years (four, if they choose to). This gives students something rare to put on their resumés. However, there aren’t as many sports for females as there are for males. This gives males more chances to succeed athletically. On the other hand, the school is full of encouraging staff members. The school even has a therapy dog for students who need to relieve stress! We are also taught about substance addiction prevention. The teacher helps us open up about problems and questions we have. The school enforces a strict policy against academic dishonesty, and always reminds students to be honest about their work. For instance, the guidance counselor advises students who do not have enough time for an assignment to ask the teacher for an extension instead of cheating.

This school has excellent programs, determined teacher, amazing environment. Just because the name has "Technical" in it does not mean it is only for nerds. There are many art programs, from Sing! theaters, to art clubs - if you would take a walk inside our school you can see the walls filled with meaningful art pieces created by our very own students. When I got into the school I was scared, but the people are so nice and helpful it made me feel comfortable. I work with students who are also motivated to do well in life so that helps us push each other. The sports programs are also really good, we have won multiple trophies, and are on a winning streak for football!
The most common misconception is that Staten Island Tech is only for those interested in STEM. In reality, while there are plenty of opportunities for aspiring engineers, architects, etc, Staten Island Tech is in reality, a choose-your-own-adventure type education. Whereas many other schools may require you to take certain courses or choose a specific course of study, Staten Island Tech only requires you to finish your regents requirements. Then, you're free to pick from the various opportunities offered--from electronics to business Russian to drama and band. Overall, the students here are willing to work hard and it fosters a community that while is sometimes competitive, inherently pushes us to do our best, preparing students for college in unmatched ways.
