As a senior, my two years here at Washington County Technical High School has been amazing. My teachers are supportive and honestly the best at what they do. The specially prepared food is amazing, and very diverse. My fellow students have the same goals as me, to be successful. There’s not a better high school experience that I could’ve asked for. I love that my Technical school still allows me to be just as productive at my home school as I am at Tech. My tech teacher is by far the best relationship i’ve had with a teacher because I know he cares about us and always wants us to have integrity and he also trusts us. I can vouch for my school when I say that we ARE the best high school in the county.

What I loved about Washington County Technical High School was how excepting they were. Each person belonged to a Tech area but all the Tech areas were friendly. There were no fights, very limited bullying. The teachers are always willing to help whenever they could. The food is excellent and provided by the Culinary Arts students every day. The Tech programs do everything they can to provide their students with everything they will need for their future careers. Also, the faculty and staff were always pleasant. The administrators always did what they could to meet me in the middle and the staff and mainly the custodians were always quick to respond when you needed them to.

A few things I would change would be the lunch menu. When I attended this school, we often had burrito bowls, walking tacos, taco salad, etc. This became a bit excessive and I would like to see the Culinary Arts Program get a bit more funding for a more voluminous lunch menu.
This high school is amazing. There are many designated “technical” arwas like culinary arts, cosmetics, carpentry, and computer game development.

I am in Culinary arts, which cooks the lunches for the school. It isn’t your normal school food. We have had lasagna, Chipotle style burrito bowl, and roasted pork. Desserts we have include white cake with Oreo buttercream frosting, pumpkin brownies, homemade cream puffs, and homemade cinnamon rolls.

We go to our tech area every other day, and every other Friday. The other days and other Friday we have academics.

This has to be one of the best schools in the country.
