Awful. That's the only word I can think to describe this school. No dedication and the students learn more at home on their own free time than they do in the classrooms. I am never sending my children here and I advise you to do the same. Your child will become depressed and no counseling will be available at the school to help. This school cares more about their A average than if the students actually learn anything.
I'm being around this school for the last 8 years. Overall an excellent school. The participation in sports and clubs help my children very much, making their high school experience very positive. They love the multiracial environment. My suggestion is to review non core classes and to integrate others that prepared them more for college, like philosophy. I will be missing driving to Tech. Titans pride, Go Tech!
I have just finished Freshman year here at TBT. I wouldn't say that this school is terrible, but I also wouldn't say it is the very best. I was not miserable, I overall had a good time. Getting involved in clubs and extracurricular activities makes your first year more fun. The teachers and staff are overall accepting and mostly dedicated. Like any other high school, fights break out occasionally and the smell of illegal drugs can fill the air. Although, this is not because of the school, but because of some of the students. You are not labeled at this school like most cliche high schools, there are no abundant groups of jocks, nerds, punks, or popular kids. You can basically be friends with anyone without being directly labeled into a specific group. Teachers are great, but watch out for the newbies, they either may take their job too seriously, or not give a care in the world about it at all. I was not bullied my Freshman year which is a pleasant welcoming. All in all, this school was a pretty good first experience into the world of high school.
My daughter was in the medical program for one year and learned a lot, this year she switched to architecture program and she is having and awesome year, not to much to complain except that I guess teachers are not used to Edsby because some of them don't update it, but a lot to mention, the AP classes are really good, the AP teacher Dr. Pool is the best.
Tampa Bay Technical High School is a great school. The teachers care about the students and offer extra help whenever needed. The office administration is efficient, organized and attentive. The difference between this great school and other academic institutions is that this learning facility is not into the power of authority, but rather into the love of education . Totally an A school.
This school is wonderfully horrid, the only thing that you will be able to learn at this establishment is how to procreate with multiple partners and do so discreetly so that the staff will not be informed about your doings. My daughter had the greatest time learning how to set fire to the trashcans which are surprisingly full of flammable rubber contraceptions. She told me in great detail how her teacher spent the entire class period showing another student how to get rid of her love bite due to her constant interruptions of the class with her fear that her mother would find it.
If you are looking to take a Health Science class do not take CNA ! You will not be able to sit for the exam as promissed and paid for before graduation...this makes this class and it's only teacher useless. No ACCOUNTABILITY this is the second year that the CNA Class was not able to finish with a CERTIFICATION.. So aLL THE CHILDREN WERE LEFT BEHIND.
dirty, filthy place, horrid enviroment, look like a juvenile hall, careless teachers and staff, bad appearence by the students,disgrace of school!!!!!
A great school. With dedicated teachers who take time outof their day and stay to help students get further. A wonderful dedicated band director, Rondal Russell.
i had a great time going there. i went from 04-08 and i love it! they have a two great magnet programs. i was in the health academy and love it. i had all the best teachers and i had actually learn something for a change and the best part was going on clincals with your program for a week. i say the best hands you can have as a high school i say no other school in state of florida can compare
Tampa Bay Tech has a diverse population of students that come from all over the county to attend this high school. We have many academies that students apply to get into, including:Architecture, Health Academy, Commercial Art, Journalism, Early Childhood,and Culinary. Students at Tech are proud to be there, and strive to graduatate high school not only with a strong academic background, but also with a skill set that will make them more competitive job applicants.
A major flaw about this school is that they DO NOT LISTEN/CARE about individual student's needs. As a student, in the 2009-2010 school year, I was placed in classes beyond my capabilities, and pretty much no matter who I asked to get that fixed, I was basically told to deal with it. I was told repeatedly that I could do the work, despite my failing grades in the class.
Tampa Bay Tech prepared my daughter well for college and she had a great time there!
I have 2 daughters who graduated from the Health Magnet program. Both were honors students, took AP classes, and got college credit for AP classes and their SAT scores. They had lots of excellent teachers at TBT. As teachers retired, they were replaces with equally excellent teachers. The principals have been excellent, caring individuals who boosted that school to new heights. My girls got an excellent education in Hillsborough county but the best was TBT. Both are honors students in college who are receiving accolades and are true success stories. As a parent, I couldn't have asked for a better educational experience for my children.
Its excellent, especially if the student goes into the health program.
i love tbt. this is the best school i have every been to. with this being my senior year that i am entering i will soon miss tbt. if you want to go to a school that will fit all your needs and help you on the right path to your career.
i think that Tampa bay tech is one of the most highly recommended schools for students that would like to receive a wonderful education
I love Tech! I would never be able to find such an amazing staff and amazing students at my local school.
My daughter is a foreign student, The School allways gives all the support and help at the right time; We love the idea that she will have more than a High School Diploma.
this is an A+ skool to send ur kids to i currentky attend tech and this freshman year of mine has been a unforgettable delight
