Yes, although its a big school and is easy to get lost in, the school has many points unique to it that makes it the great school it is. Even though there are many sides to this school I would like to change, there are even more points that I love about it. Brooklyn Tech is a place where it really lets you focus on the things and subjects that really interest a student, whether in class or outside of it.

Yes if you do well here you will do well anywhere. The big classes simulate a bit of college life so once you graduate you will be ready. There are so many extra-curricular activities in which you can make good friends that will enhance your experience.

I would definitely recommend any hard-working person to attend Brooklyn Technical High School. Here you will be taught from the best teachers and able to explore your interest. Brooklyn Technical High School not only have a student population like some middle size universities, our system is also similar to those in universities. At the end of your sophomore year, you will be picking a major which affects the schedules of your junior and senior's year. However, for example, if you picked to major in Applied Mathematics, you will still be taking English class ; we want you still be able to communicate what you solved and how you solved certain problems.

I'd recommend attending Brooklyn Technical High School if I had the choice because of all the opportunities that it offers, such as exceptional teachers, a superb environment, and long-lasting connections. Teachers at Tech reach out to students who are struggling with the courses. Further, I've never seen anyone getting bullied at Tech, because, honestly, we're all just too focused on keeping our GPA high for college. And finally, with over 5,000 students attending the school, it's almost effortless to find your own group of friends with whom you share similar interests. This makes us Technites to appreciate school life more since we have somewhere to fit in.

I would recommend attending BTHS because it has so many different students from various places and multiple cultures that it's like its own city. You get the chance to encounter people who have the complete opposite background of you and you become more culturally and socially aware. In addition, it's really easy to make new friends and to take part in whatever activity interests you. If you don't see a club of your interest, you could make your own! It's very simple. Moreover, we have students that work hard and play hard. We motivate each other to try our very best towards improving ourselves or whatever we aim for.

I would recommend the school to a student if the student was able to face challenges. The student cannot simply complain if the workload gets too hard. The student must be determined because it is extremely competitive.

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.
