    "Overall, I had a successful and memorable high school experience. I formed relationships and friendships that have made a genuine positive impact in my life. The leadership and authoritarian figures at the school guided me throughout my time as a student and worked to ensure that I had all the tools necessary to be successful in the real world."

    "I like that the teachers are willing to help you succeed. You just got to put the work in and they are there to help you grow. What I would like to see them change is the way they connect with the students. The kids who do their work are more friendly with the teachers rather than the students who don't. I know a kid who feels like they're setting him up to fail but I know they don't."

    "New Tech High at Zion Benton East is a small project-based learning school in the center of town. There are no more than 400 students total, which allows an intimate setting to thrive. I am a senior right now and this is the best school I have ever gone to. I like smaller settings, and New Tech was perfect. Since this is a PBL (project-based learning) school, oral communication and collaboration is a big deal, which help you in the long run. Since attending this school, my oral communication skills have improved drastically. I remember how scared I was Freshman year to present in front of people I did not know. Now, everyone basically knows everyone and it is like a big family. Some may have issues with there being no AP classes available, but I do believe the dual credit courses make up for it. Junior and Senior year, we test to see if we are able to take college courses, and if we are, we can earn up to 24 credits by graduation time in June of Senior year."

    "I enjoyed my time at New Tech High. The teaching styles and different viewpoints on curriculum were both interesting and challenging; however, there were also those that were infuriating. The small class sizes and close knit graduating classes were very helpful on the social front; you knew everyone you graduated with and formed relationships that were beneficial during projects."

    "The best thing about this school is how connected and small it is. Everyone interacts with everyone there. The teachers can connect with students to help them better. There isn't a division between the upperclassmen and the underclassmen. The school also makes a point to bring in real representatives to relate back to the projects the students are creating. The school focuses heavily on prepping students for the real world and does so by showing students how to be successful and manage teamwork. The school's only downfall is that it has to share everything with the Zion Benton campus. This gives the school limited clubs and forces students to travel between campuses just for extra-curricular activities."
