I love Washington Tech! The teachers are very supportive, helpful, and do an amazing job teaching and making sure we understand everything. The guidance counselors at the school are really the best ever! They have helped me so much in every possible way with college things and personal problems I also have faced. Overall this school is doing a very great job with everything, even with school online they are making it as easy as possible so the students understand and also get the education they need.

My experience in Washington County Technical High School was very good. I went from going to a high school I felt didn’t care about me, to going to a place where I felt I belong. The people and atmosphere in the school is also very uplifting and joyful. They have an excellent culinary class that makes everyones lunch in the school, a carpentry class that builds houses for people, a criminal justice class that makes traffic stops and practices combat and so much more! The only downfall is some of the administration are not the greatest.
Washington County Technical High School is an amazing trade high school, that allows students to get a step in the door of their chosen career path. Tech high has allowed me to get a head start in my nursing career. This school has allowed me to get my CNA and I have the opportunity to get my GNA and CCMA while still in high school. Which will able me to get a health care job straight out of high school. The only down side of the school is the parking lot because of all the students it is difficult to get out of the school lot in a timely manor. Other than that one down side the school is a great opportunity!
