    "I'm not sure where this parent get's his/her information, but BayTech has two social studies/history teachers on staff. My daughter is currently enrolled in Ancient History and my son is taking American History. As far as sixth graders learning GIMP, I think as one part of a complete computer literacy program, it fits well. The kids enjoy experimenting and being creative with it as they learn how to use it in conjunction with other programs. Modern presentations require a broad knowledge-base that goes far beyond what a basic PowerPoint is able to show."

    "I do not think this school is preparing children for the future, there "computer specialist" teaches kids GIMP the free Photoshop Kids Don't need to know how to use Photoshop to Run a business or get a job they need PowerPoint, MW, and Microsoft programs and typing practice, There's a Base of Hispanic Students who don't speak English and will graduate high school without even knows how to speak English in America! There's No History Classes. So I'm not even sure if this school meets A-G requirements. they teach Turkish (Useless Language In America). At least they have a Spanish class. The school needs to be looked at closely by the ousd."

    "Bay Area Technology School is the best school in town and highly recommended!!! From 6th grade until now 12th grade, my son and I are very satisfied for what they offer like free after school program which is awesome! Tutoring even it's late or over the weekend. They prepare students to graduate. they have practice test to help you pass SAT. They also have AP courses that's help for college application. They have piano, arts, drama club for extra learning and for language learning they offer Spanish and Turkish class. You can check online for your child progress, grades, homework, etc.. Principal, teachers and staffs are nice, very helpful and friendly. If your child start learning and disciplined at home they will love and appreciate Baytech."

    "Bay Area Technology school is the best community school in Oakland. It offers quality education in a caring, family like environment. The class sizes are small so teachers are able to cater for the needs of the individual students. I love this school and therefore have enrolled my younger child now for next year. Baytech is the best!"

    "Are you kidding me? I don't know who filled out the Programs & Culture section but 99% of it is a lie. There are no special education classes, as an OUSD resource teacher is brought in and pulls certain students at different times. There is no ESL program going on, including no Spanish or Turkish Immersion program. (Ask yourself this as well: what purpose does learning Turkish have in the real world today? Virtually nothing.) There is no band program, other than a music class. Discipline is sparse, as students get away with anything and everything. The campus is littered with trash and the classroom resources are virtually non-existent. The administration is more worried about having high enrollment rather than having a successful school. Teacher turn-over is extremely high, there is minimal parental involvement (other than a parent who wants to run everything), and the administration is clueless about how to run a great school; leadership is beyond poor. Teacher quality comes and goes with the turn-over rate. Some teachers have great skills at this school, while others teach as if they are simply a warm body in the classroom."
