I would recommend attending Brooklyn Technical High School in a heartbeat. No other school gives you the same opportunities that Brooklyn Tech does. We have hundreds of extracurricular activities, including clubs that go on after school every day. You're never idle or bored. Whether you're interested in chess, ping-pong, theatre, hockey, golf, Doctor Who, astrology, or a multitude of other things, you will find a club or team that interests you and you will find friends that you could bond over those interests with.
Although Brooklyn Tech is huge, the formatting of our classes makes it easy to find communities within the school to feel comfortable in. We have a system of majors in which you take classes with people who are interested in the same things as you. I am in the Law and Society major, which means I get to talk politics with fellow history buffs who take classes like Civil Law and Criminal Procedure in a real courtroom in our school. If you're not into politics, there's no need to worry because there are a dozen other majors with concentrations spanning the sciences, math, humanities, and technology.
One of the beauties of this system of majors is all the inter-major collaborations that happen. Ambitious students in the media major can design something to be made by students in the engineering or architecture major and then a student in the law major can help patent it and a student in the finance major can calculate what cost the product should be sold at to create a profit. This is just one example of how Brooklyn Tech students are all interconnected.
Brooklyn Tech becomes a home to many students, and alumni always come back to visit their former teachers. The influence and care of these teachers extend far beyond the classroom. I've had teachers who have come to see me give a speech at the opening of a museum exhibit and to watch me play tennis matches.
Brooklyn Tech is more than just a place you go to every day to get an education. It's the biggest family you will ever have. Once you graduate, you will be thankful for everyone who is and was a part of it.
