I liked Technology High School's involvement with the students. They really value student's opinions and their education. Academics are always on top compared to other Newark Public Schools. There are also many extracurricular activities and clubs such as the math club to make students feel like they could be a part of something. Culture is also valued greatly and celebrated once every year in an open cultures night. Overall Technology High school works hard to make sure all of their students succseed both academically and in the real world.

Technology High School shines amongst other high schools in Newark. Personally, I felt as if I was adequately prepared academically. The teachers were OK; I have had some teachers that were so dramatically conflicting and that just plainly couldn't teach and I have had wonderful teachers that truly care and have worked to prepare me for college. So it's a spectrum, like all things.
I learned a lot from my biology, physics, and AP biology teachers. They truly wanted their students to learn and understand the subject. However, my chemistry teacher was not as great. Most of the time, she seemed as if she did not understand the subject herself. We would ask her questions that she did not even know how to answer. Other than that, the teachers there are really nice and care about how well you are doing in their class.
