TechBoston Academy Reviews
I attended TBA from 6th grade to graduation and although the school isn’t the best, it’s easy one of the best non exam schools in Boston. The opportunities provided through the school are amazing such as the Upward Bound program, debate club, SGA, UAspire, Noonan Scholars, and the variety of classes available to students in the school. Teachers very clearly care about their students and form relationships with said students. They need better technology and WiFi despite their name being TECH Boston Academy. Also, there should be a better assortment of AP and honors classes for students looking to challenge themselves. Students are limited to 2 maybe 3 AP classes in one year and it should be as many as the student thinks they are prepared for.
I would first like to start off by saying this school has very good education if you're willing to learn. Many students have excelled in this school getting very high GPA's and good grades. However this school is NOT good at making bonds with their students, teachers for the most part do not care about their students. MOST of the staff except for some like, Mr.luv and Mr. Casado are completely useless when dealing with issues in regard with students. For example 2016-2017 school year at techboston academy had more then 20 physical altercations with their students. Don't send your child to deal with ongoing drama for the whole school year the good education is NOT worth it.
Overall, this school was great for the one year I attended it. Very diverse, and all students appear to be accepting of one another. The teachers are incredibly understanding and supportive, especially when coming to them for academic help. Just like any other public school, the food is terrible, but this is not that big of a deal because most students bring their own food. The school doesn't have great funding for a large number of supplies or clubs, but being a technology school, the school give out technology for the students to use, and the upper-level grades all get their own laptops to use for their high school career, and keep once they graduate. If I had to recommend a high school, I would recommend TechBoston!
