Staten Island Tech prepares students very well for college, and also makes sure to update students about opportunities (scholarships, contests, internships, etc.) frequently. SIT is also a fairly competitive school, though like all schools, there are high and low achievers. All the teachers are nice and genuinely want to help the students; they make you feel comfortable. The workload isn’t heavy if you have good time management, and more often than not, I find myself with a fair amount of time for myself. School facilities like the library are useful, and the guidance counselors are all friendly and open.
I rated SIT four and not five stars because of the lack of languages taught here. The only available language is Russian, which is disappointing for many students. In comparison to other schools where various languages are offered, SIT is extremely limited; the only compensation they have is taking an online course for a different language during senior year.

I love Staten Island Tech! This is my senior year and my experience has been so amazing. I have made so many wonderful friends and have had the opportunity to experience so many different things, like working at a lab doing research, participating in our school's student run play, and working with the Student Government.
Staten Island truly lives up to its reputation as the top #2 high school in NYS (Newsletter 2016 Top US high schools). The academic curriculum is very challenging yet rewarding. At Tech, students begin to take AP courses as early as freshmen year, along with several honors and elective classes. In addition, they participate in wide-range of after school activities, such as SING, Spring Musical, and Multicultural Shows. Students get to showcase their talents and culture through this performances, which is what makes Tech so special. On the other hand, Tech is no different than other schools, or rather, the students. Kids will be kids after all, so there are no doubt certain students who can be troublesome.
