Student, High Technology High School, Class of 2016,
A typical High Tech student is passionate, driven, focused and determined. We are a usual school, unlike other high schools, this high school is smaller because of its acceptance rate. Thus, I like to think of ourselves as a tight-knit school. After the past three years of attending High Tech I can honestly say that this school is rare; we are a body of students extremely close. From the very first day I entered the school I was greeted and welcomed by various students and teachers and it continues to stay the same. Everyone somehow has something in common, for instance many times it may be the stress we share because of the challenging classes. Students here are extremely creative in different areas like: graphic arts, performing arts, musical theater, studio arts, culinary arts, etc. Absolutely everyone in this school has a goal and it's very enlightening to hear about the colleges many of these students plan to attend and careers they will pursue. I think the reason why I personally find my school to be somewhere I don't mind going to five times a week, is because we all appreciate and know the struggles we had to go through to attend such a selective high school. Thus, if a student is looking for a unique, challenging, and open-minded school, High Tech High School is definitely worth applying to.
