I am a student at tech would not want to be anywhere else. I honestly like I am getting one of the best educational opportunities availabe by being at tech. As a senior next year, I will be taking 5 AP classes only provided by tech. We have excellent programs, including sports and other music related programs and one of the best principal's ever. If I was a parent, this is the only school I would want my child in.

A wide variety of extra-curricular activities and a great parents association! Every test passing rate and college prep quality percentage is WAY above normal levels.

Tech High is not only the best school in Buffalo but also in all of New York state. I attend the school and I've never felt safer or more connected to those around me. The education offered is extraordinary and the programs are one of a kind. Most of the teachers are really involved with the students and enjoy their job. Classes are fun, but not to the point where education is thrown out of the door. I'm sure that the school's biochemical engineering program is better than that of most community colleges. I'm grateful to know that I am a part of 100 years of excellence. Good luck to all incoming freshmen, and I recommend this school to anyone who cares about their future. But don't come if you don't want to work hard.

I have 3 sons attending Tech. There is a tremendous amount of comfort for me. At Tech, Mr. Greco & Miss Schneider will take no baloney. Academics are very good to excellent, with few exceptions. No school is perfect. The teachers really care, they take time to speak to students and parents. My sons are blessed to be a part of this school. It is definately the best choice for my sons. They have a wonderful swimming team, 2nd to none! It would be wonderful if the budget were such that there could be more options for student activities. Ever since 9-11 no field trips, many cuts in functions. Parent teacher night should not be same night as Patron meeting.

This is one of the greatest schools to attend. If you want your kid to get a great education, then this is the school for you. It is also a very friendly environment. This is one of the best high schools to attend in New York State, very challenging for students. I graduated from Hutch Tech in 1986.

I was a student there, and graduated in the class of 2000. While I was there, safety was impeccable! The school was a wonderful influence on my life and I'm very glad to say I am a graduate of Hutch Tech.

I graduated from the 'School of Excellence' in 1997, and I must admit that Hutch Tech is def. 1 of the top 2 schools in Buffalo. The staff is inviting and willing to help, and I thank many of my former teachers for that. I would recommend this school to any parent wanting the best for his child.

My daughter is a junior at Hutch Tech. I am very pleased with the quality of education she's receiving. With the exception of private schools, I feel Hutch Tech is the best public school in Buffalo.

Hutchinson Central Technical High School is the best public high schol in the city of Buffalo. Mr. Greco the principal is doing an excellent job. I love this school and would encourage every middle school student to achieve to get here. There should be more schools like Tech. The teachers care about their students which helps in every way imaginable. The students are the best. Its just a great school.

I graduted from Tech in 2002. I would have to say it was the best education I could have gotten outside of a private school. The teachers were excellent and the principal made it a very safe environment to learn in. The city budget is weak however and extracurricular and sports are lacking. I must say however that the education I recieved at Tech prepared me for college, and even put me ahead of most of my peers. An excellent technical school and science school. It is one of only two schools in the state to offer Organic chemistry (to juniors who are majoring in biochem technology). Also offers an extensive building program and computer program.

I have one child graduated from Hutch Tech and a sophmore. We are very happy with the school. It is very large, but neither of my children got 'lost' in the crowds. The low budget for the city schools is unfortunate. The jazz band has been disbanded, they were excellent. We don't have a gymnastics team or orchestra, so things are lacking, but the education is very good, most of the teachers are excellent to good. Pricipal is responsive. A good choice for students in the Buffalo Public System.
