I am a freshman in Western Tech and it is a very good school compared with the others in Baltimore County. The school does give you challenging courses and they main priority is to prepare you for college. The teachers are average, some teachers are really good while others are not as good in conducting a classroom appropriately, like in most schools. Western Tech has so many clubs it’s unbelievable and the amount of diversity we have in each classroom is to a great extent. Western Tech has clubs relating to culture like African Student Association and South Asian Student Association and other clubs like the Fishing club. They need improvement on how to spend student’s downtime. They try by doing Cultural Coalescence and Club day, but in my opinion we should have a break in time called Study Hall where students can get caught up in their school work, chill out, and study! Overall Western Tech is the number one school to go to!

Formally known as, “ Western Tech” , this is an amazing high school institution to enhance your academic experience. Teachers, administrators and a host of other staff are truly caring and take time out to get to know their students on a personal level. Students success are Western Tech educators top
priority. This school has a low enrollment level due to its carefully handpicked admission decisions. Being admitted at this school proves you had potential to take on this outside world with a good head on your shoulders. The magnet programs offered help to assist you with deciding what you would like to pursue in the future. I would highly recommend this schoo for any Baltimore county students deciding on a high school. It is truly an experience you will not regret.
Western Tech taught me hardwork and dedication pays off in the end. The teachers here are vehemnent about pushing their students to be better then they were the previous day. Here you will feel a sense of community and meet lifelong friends. Though we may graduate and travel all across the states; and for sone the world, we will remember the Western Tech that helped to mold us and shape our character. Eventhough we may not have a football field or track, we were always able to persevere and make the best of what we did have. I loved my teachers;I loved my magnet; I loved being a Wolverine!
