The last four years at Sussex Technical Highschool have been nothing but happiness! To start, the environment at tech is so friendly and welcoming. The diversity at tech is second to none, and we are always one big family! The teachers at Tech are always understanding and thorough in their classrooms. The administration at my school is so helpful, and treats everyone equally. I couldn't have picked a better school to go to. The only thing that I would like to see changed in the future is our school lunches. If they were healthier, more appealing, and more diverse, the students would enjoy them more!
Review Sussex Technical High School
Before I attended Sussex Tech I came from a very poor school, I won't point any fingers but let me tell you... it was bad! My pervious school was very dangerous, run-down, low budget, poor education and all around sour community.Luckily I was accepted into Sussex Tech where I was expecting similar qualities since even though it was a different school, I'm still in Delaware. And we're not known for high reputation schools. But Sussex Tech was so incredibly different from my previous school, it was almost magical. The teachers don't stare you down. The kids look and are happy to be there. There are more options educationally and etc. Sussex Tech offers a larger and better technical class selection. And best of all, I was getting a significantly better education than beforehand! Before Sussex Tech, I hated going to school because I was scared and I knew that I wasn't getting the knowledge I desired. But now, I absolutely love going to school everyday!
Coming to this school has been a great experience! Students are given so many opportunities academically and socially. The work load is heavy but with time management it is not that hard. The only major problem I see in school is that if some kids aren't really involved in any sports or clubs there isn't really much for you to do. So if you aren't really into school organizations and don't do anything outside of school you won't really enjoy your time at tech.
