( LONG BUT ITS WORTH READING!) Something people should know about the school prior to going here is that the school offeres a variety of programs and opportunities for EVERYONE. HOWEVER! it depends on the INDIVIDUAL if they want to take these opportunities. IF one does not apply themselves then those chances will fade if you dont take the chances. What i like most about Tech is the diversity. For any future Tech students who is reading this please please please take advantages of the programs and apply yourself because you will be rewarded many things such as I honor roll parties, was part of tech legion (highest award you can get), part of National Honors Society(recognizes your academic achievement and helps you be a community helper), part of after school activities(FUN!) and Arsenal tech helped me become a great person who will contribute well to future society. R-E-M-E-M-B-E-R. TECH WILL HELP YOU IF YOU HELP YOURSELF FIRST.
Tech High School was the beginning of my teaching career in the 70's. I consider myself lucky to have worked in Indianapolis Public Schools.
Not a good school - bullying of children constantly! Kids will not be protected here by the administration.
It's a good school for students who want more than one option or the colllege feeling and the business world things.I wouldn't recromend this school to anyone but I would tell them to go there if they want a certain type of career in mind.
There are many activities to go along with programs to develop into a positive society member
This school is an outstanding school for students who like to interact with their teachers and meet new people everday. I graduated from this highschool and am now attending college.
This school is amazing and has several opportunities for students to advance in academics, sports, and the arts.
I really enjoy this school plenty of diversity. and everyone always makes friends.
it is a really nice school with great courses. the students are very diverse and open about beliefs and cultures. it is a great mixture of backgrounds and the students are great. everyone is easy to get along with and the teachers are very open to helping you succeed.
I currently attend this school and I would say that it is fairly decent. We have alot of racism in the school but I think that the link between us all overpowers it by much. I do enjoy the small school and the fact that we now have lockers. But the small schools are very helpful because it shows the seperation of education if your in a higher small school then you want to have a better education. Like Magnet is first of course the one I am in. then follows CTA then New Tech High then International following Creative Expression. Most of the teachers are cool but many have a very stiff side to them. But overall this is a great school to attend because of the campus it really prepares you for your future life in college
My son goes to Tech, I graduated from Tech, my Mom graduated from Tech and my Great Uncle was in the first 4 year graduating class. It has the same high quality of teachers and curriculum. Just needs the support of the 'powers that be.'
I graduated from Tech HS in 2005 and really enjoyed my time at the school. There are plenty of opportunities for students to excell and get involved in extracurricular activities. One of the best schools in Indianapolis.
I currently attend Aresenal Technical, and I am in the Academy of Creative Expressions. I transferred to Arsenal Technical after attending a very small, non-diverse school. Out of four hundred students, one student was African American. Because of Arsenal Technical being an inner-city school, I am exposed to many different cultures I never would be otherwise. Although the academic standards are not what I'm used to (I used to be in all Advanced Placement classes), the life experience itself is worth it.
I am current Tech student. Since the small schools have come to Tech I find that teachers think it's easier while students dislike them. I am in the Enterprise International Academy. I do like my academy a lot. At the moment we do not have a Japanese teacher and it is said that we are seeking one. I am in the Foreign Language Magnet. Academics at Tech are definitely something. I find everything challenging and exciting. I believe that the music and art classes are very cramped. There are many people in each class and that makes it difficult to have much needed work space. I don't see many parents in or at Tech. I know many parents like to come to the schools games. I find that the parent support mainly goes to sports and related.
I'm a current student at Arsenal Technical High school. I'm an honor student and play three varsity sports. I'm also in the magnet program and have been since my freshmen year. I haven't been to other high schools but i know that tech high school is the best. The teachers at the school are wonderful and care a lot about you and your education. They want to see you suceed and become somebody.Also the sports may not be the best but the relationships that you build with your teen mates and coaches are phenomenal. Everyone on the team gets along and the coaching staff is the best ever. When i get older i probably will send my kids to this school b/c i know the future for this school performance will only increase.
I graduated from Tech in 2005 and i loved my time with the school. I was active with many sports teams, musical groups, and publishing clubs within the school. I recieved an excellent education which carried me on to win national scholarships, national awards, and state awards for my talents. IPS has always led me in the right direction.
I was a student at Arsenal Tech I graduated 1983 and have nothing, but good memories at this school. I now have a son who attends Tech he's in one of the magnet programs and he also loves being there. He is active in 3 sports and a challenging class schedule, but he says he would not have it any other way. He is currently a shopmore and has plans of attending Purdue University on a scholarship in the science and medical feild. Go Titans. Mark Thompson Sr.
I was a student at Tech and was a part of the Math/Science/Technology Magnet. I thought that the work was extremely challenging and the extracurricular activities were very good. Their musicals are unmatched by any of the other IPS high schools and their JROTC is top of the line.
I am a student at Arsenal tech. I am in one of their very many magnet programs. I also participate in a variety of sports and music programs at my school. I would recommend any 8th graders that aren't sure about what they would like to study in college or what they want to do beyond high school to go to arsenal tech because it so many different programs offered there and if you ever change your mind you will find another program to fall right back into. And after being in the program at school you may qualify to do a co-op or internship your senior year for part of the school day.
arsenal technical high school is a great school with great programs I have kids who graduated with honors from aresenal technical high school and my youngest three are still a part of the magnet program. Arsenal Technical High School is one of the best IPS schools in indianapolis.
