I genuinely enjoyed my experience at Worcester Tech, it's a fun school with great teachers and students alike. There's minimum bullying, fighting and all those distractions that tend to occur at other public schools. If you want something, you have to seek it out which I think is a great step in preparing us for college and life. Though information is easily accessible, you have to actively search for it whether it be by asking a guidance counselor or assistant principal or even someone ask close as your teacher. All in all I had a good experience at Worcester Technical High School.

Worcester Technical High is an amazingly diverse school, yet still lacks good academic teachers. It's a trade school, meaning there are certain trades you can get into, from Cosmetology to Welding. Shop teachers are all very instructive and safety-oriented. I wish there was more student involvement when it comes to clubs, and even with that, I wish there were more clubs in general. Though, it is fairly easy to pitch any ideas you want around the schools to administrators so that's a good plus. Overall, it may have some small flaws, but the school deeply cares about it's students well-being and future.
This is not your regular average high school. This school has a variety of trades that anyone can choose and learn from. These trades range from Construction, IT, Business, Health, and more. The schedules are also different. You take your academic classes on one week, and then your trade class the next week, and the cycle repeats itself. What's great about the schedule setup is that not only you are learning from your academic classes which could help you further your knowledge and education, but you are also learning from your trade class which can help you get a job in the future.
