    "Going to sci-tech wasn't the high school experience I was expecting. This school didn't feel like a high school because it was too small. My class was very small. There was about 75 students in my grade I knew everyone. I didn't learn a lot from high school, I wish I could have learned more than what I did. Now I'm in college I wish went to a best high school. But you love math and engineering this is the school for you."

    "Overall good school. Classes move at a faster pace due to only having 4 classes a day at 80 minutes each period. Teachers are generally young but they all work hard at their job and you can tell they love what they do. The counselors at the school are amazing, they're really personal and always push students to do better. Student classwork is usually done on the school issued laptops, each student is assigned their own. High school students are allowed to take their laptops home. Art and music classes are not taught traditionally which is quite a bummer, I wish I could see more traditional ways in that department. Only one foreign language class is offered, Spanish, and I'd enjoy seeing more variety there. There are little to no after school activities. The school doesn't have their own sports team which honestly a problem. our sports department teams up with two neighboring schools in the district to create a sports team."

    "Overall, attending the Pittsburgh Science and Technology Academy has been an honor. The teachers are very dedicated to their professions, and are willing to help all of the students realize their goals in life. Through the unique course loads and opportunities provided to students, I also feel as though the majority of students are coming out college ready and prepared for any and all types of post-secondary ventures."

    "The academics of the school were more than wonderful. I really had no complaint about it other than the principal at the time Mr. McNeil. His discipline styling was atrocious and unfair."

    "This school has opened so many opportunities for me as a student. It is academically challenging, competitive and overall great environment. If you use the resources well and really talk to the teacher they will help you reach your goals. I was fourtunate to take advantage of the unique 3 year graduation plan. I have competed and done well in many science competitions. I see there are some negative review but many of those things are dealt with in a very professional manner and are not on going problems. This school has set me up for a great plan in the future."
