Staten Island Technical High School Reviews

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.

This high school has given me and so many other students many opportunities to find their niche and excel in it whether it be in the academics, theatrical drama, or just the many competitions in general. This size of this public school is relatively small compared to the other high schools in the area. Because of this small size, the school environment feels comfortable for the students. The students can play an active role in the school due to the Student Organization (S.O) which bridges the gap between the students and the administration. Although the focus of the academics of this school are focused around the Sciences, Technology, Engineering, and the Mathematics (STEM), SING is a theatrical show fully written, directed, and performed by the students which also gives the students the ability to excel in what they like. Overall because of this school, I feel I will be better prepared to excel in college.
The best part of this high school is the methodology for college preparation. Every teacher strives to make students be better accommodated for the college workload and process. They are highly knowledgeable about their topics and are willing to expand on subjects if a student needs further help on it. They are also very inclined to assist students in their college application and selection, providing helpful advice from a person that has already went through it.

As for technology, the school is one of the most tech-forward institutions in the nation. Students are provided access to cutting-edge devices like 3D Printers, Raspberry Pis and so on.

One thing I'd like to see changed about the school are the classrooms. They are very old and can be improved upon.
