While attending this school I loved the sports aspect. I participated in girls flag football and I think our school was a well-rounded competitor in sports. I enjoyed the diversity within the school itself. Being that TBT is a technical school, I felt prepared for college and higher education. Students are given the opportunity to earn a certificate in the desired career fields. This can enhance a student’s path for success. Some of the many programs included are dental assistant, culinary arts, veterinarian and ROTC. The programs offered at this school is exceptional and beneficial. I would recommend this high school to any student that would like to be certified in their future career. I enjoyed the clubs as there are many options to choose from. This school has a lot to offer!
I like Tampa Bay Technical High School because of the friendly staff around campus. If you were to get lost, there would always be someone to help you. I'm also fond of the diversity that Tech has. It gives us a chance not to only socialize and interact with only our race but other races as well. Most of the teachers there are very helpful as well and try and keep you on top of things so you don't easily fall behind. I really feel like they are there to prepare us for college and beyond and will do so by all means necessary!
