    "Pros: 1) Most of the teachers here are phenomenal, they will go help you as much as they can if you are passionate about your education. Also if a student is struggling they do a lot to help the student pass. They are truly the best thing in this school. 2) This is a CTE school so students are able to receive special certifications. Furthermore, in senior year students will have to get an internship due to a Work Based Learning approach by the school. This work experience along with computer certifications will look pretty impressive. 3) The faculty in HSCT are also wonderful, they are kind and assist you whenever needed. 4) The academics in the school are pretty good considering its situation. There are a few AP courses and one honors course as of my attendance in the school. 5) Despite the fact that there are 5 other schools in the building and the surrounding neighbor is kind of shady, students from HSCT are relatively safe. There are a couple of fights throughout the school, but they are mostly from the other schools fighting each other. Also, despite all these schools in one building there isn't some sort of hatred from one school to the next. The students don't really care if you go HSCT or contemp (from my experience, but it seems like that for everyone.) Cons: 1) This is a CTE school so it doesn't have a college prep curriculum, but that's not really hindering our chances for college at all. 2) Lack of extracurricular activities, there are few and many students don't take advantage of them. 3) The surrounding neighbor could be dangerous as well as kids from other schools, but caution should be taken wherever you are. 4) Although the teachers are great students may have to "kiss up" to them to really get noticed by them, for example if you're not a star student or struggling with the most basic of concepts the teacher may not give you much attention. The class sizes are kind of large."

    "To be honest, there's not much to this school. It is clear that this school is no where near top-notch, but there are a few good things that could make your experience worthwhile. First of all, most of the teachers are absolutely amazing. They greatly support and care students that show that they care about their education, but they also try to their absolute best to help students that don't even deserve it. The teachers and faculty are truly a blessing to this inadequate school, they will help make the most of your high school experience. The school itself isn't in the best situation, if you ask me. HSCT is in Evander Child's campus which includes 5 other schools which aren't the most welcoming. Furthermore, the building and outside neighbor aren't exactly the safest or cleanest either. Also, contrary to what you might have heard, there really aren't many fights in this school, but when there are fights things do go south fast. Luckily, students at HSCT don't have to worry about this much. The academics at this school aren't extraordinary, but its not bad either. The only gripe I have is that the senior year is incredibly lacking. There are only 2 classes for those who are on track and the rest of the day is spent at an internship due to a work based learning approach. This isn't too much of a problem considering the students that attend the school, receiving some work experience would probably be more helpful than having to take classes which they will most likely not pass. On to the extracurricular activities. There aren't much activities at all in this school, the only ones I can think of are the robotics club, peer group connection and girl's club. Despite this are sports team which are available to students throughout the campus. Students may try to make their own club if they have a teacher with them, though many teacher do go straight home after school. Also there are some clubs, but you'll have to look and ask around for them."

    "This school is okay for your first three years, but once your senior year comes by, you will definitely enjoy your senior year."
