One of the best schools in Eastern Connecticut, The Upcoming Additions should make it also one of the Most beautiful. Teachers are Amazing! Students are friendly and generally respectful. (Many Students Choose Not to Lock Lockers) Technical/science/math curriculum is great, Reading program is somewhat lacking but still very good. Lacks an Art and Music Program but has excellent substitutes for co-curricular activities.

I am a current student at this school. I enjoy it very much. I know i didn't just want to be just in a regular high school so i, with my parents agreement, decided to come to this technical school. I really don't regret it. There was a lot of drama in my old high school and i would get wrapped up in it but in this school we are broken up more so there is less. I encourage you to come to this school. At least try it you can always switch to another high school if you don't think it was the right chose. We had many students switch out cause it is their chose. They didn't think it was the right fit for them. Now we are left with mostly with the students that want to stay. By the way i'm in architectural technologies! Hope this was helpful

I graduated as part of the Class of 2007. I believe that there are some amazing teachers on the staff, and the PFO, although few members, is helpful. As sports go, many students are part of a team; some play two or three sports as well. The trade area allows students to earn a high school diploma along with technical training that they keep with them for the rest of their lives. Ellis Tech is a great school.

I have been pleased with the preparation my son has received both academically and in his trade. He has been able to participate in sports and other extra-curricular activities. He has been accepted to college and has qualified for scholarships. Ellis Tech is a demanding school where students meet the same graduation criteria as a regular high school in 90 days/year as well as qualifying for a trade certificate in 90 days/year.

I am enrolled in Ellis Tech Technical Vocational School and i think that this school is good. the accodemic wing of the school is good and we learn the same amount as normal public schools do. Architectural Drafting is the best shop there though. I think that the teachers here are very good and i think that the teachers teach us at are ability. Also we get the education in our trade and we get to experince the work areas and different trade areas.
