What I loved the most about Sussex Tech was the programs they offered. At Sussex Tech, their is something for everyone. Whether its cosmetology, environmental, business. The list goes on! Not only did I get the chance to learn more about my career field, ill be graduating with multiple certifications to leave with the chance of getting a job. I can't thank my wonderful instructors enough for giving me the opportunity to increase and grow as an individual.

Congratulation! You’re going to Tech. You likely figured Central is too easy for your extraordinary potential, Seaford is basically the devil’s playground, and what the hell is Cape? If you want a personal opinion from one of Tech’s “Mighty Ravens”, just listen to your pal Cameron!

Choose one of their various technical areas, but only sample six of them, and absorb the numerous skills for future careers. And be prepared to present your senior project that you have four years to work on but only start your last. And be creative. Especially in a way that completely abandons expectations from teachers & counselors. Cause if you want to be independent, prove to yourself, and to others, that a Raven should be more than just a bird. Ravens are glorious mutations subjective to the student, even if you have to force it to be something beyond expectation.
The teachers kept up with every student. No student fell behind. Sussex Technical High School prepared me for the real world, and gave me a huge head start with college. I was able to obtain my C.N.A. and take multiple college courses in high school. Because of that head start, I am about two years ahead in school! Sussex Technical High School was the best experience, and I am so thankful that I was able to go there!
