a place that lies and says they will do one thing and doesn't. Don't be fooled by the name, that is what lures the the victims in. It is a place where the student council has no power, the teachers are all te same (except different accents) and you do something called "Tai Chi", it is dreadful
Kid : Hey look I got a notice from "High Tech High"

Dad: nope your not going

Kid: But Why?

Dad: No kid of mine is going to be labeled a nerd.

A vocational school in Lincroft, NJ mainly defined by its statuses as 7th in the nation for public schools last year, and 4th in the nation this year.

Statistically
It is filled with some of the brightest people you can find, but if you're not ready to work like hell I wouldn't recommend it. People hear about the ranking and average SAT scores and go there in order to impress colleges. Regardless, if you're lazy, this school will not make you much smarter. Homework is manageable if you don't procrastinate. So basically, if you're 95% of our class, homework isn't manageable.

Environmentally (from the perspective of a sophomore)
Almost all the girls there aren't attractive physically, and a minority are also blessed with awful personalities, either talking to you about something boring and geeky, or crying over something that is not worth crying over. The freshmen are nice but their hallway smells like someone lit a pile of shit on fire. As a sophomore, I'd say that we have a generally nice class, with only a handful of asses and most of those being girls who no one talks to anyway. There are a nice amount of great upperclassmen, but too many of them are dickish people who give their class a bad reputation. We seem to have no defined cliques nor any real fights.

Classes
You don't need to take notes but you should pay attention, because it makes everything easier to not study for. There is a quiz in something almost every day, and most of your classmates will do all their homework or studying in the morning or at lunch. The main problem everyone seems to have with our teachers is that they (the ones people complain about) don't teach, but if you go to extra help, you will do better. On an average day, you come into whatever class you have, sit down and receive some random graded test or quiz you took the week before. If you did well, you will smile and put it in your binder as someone across the room complains about their getting the same grade you just got (a ploy for sympathy, i.e. "OMG I FAILED I GOT A 90," as if another person will think "a 90 is failing to them? they must be smart!"). If you did badly, an ugly girl will approach you and haughtily ask you what you got. I don't know why, I didn't make the rules, it's just what always happens. The engineering classes are kind of a joke. You will learn some things, but no matter how badly you do on quizzes and tests 96 or higher, and so far that rule applies to both freshman and sophomore year. Apparently all the classes we take are honors, but I don't really see any difference between these and the ones I had in middle school.

Lifestyle
Punch Michael Phelps in the balls and then jump into a pool to understand how hard it is to lose your virginity here. I'm serious. Everyone will be your friend, your only problem making social plans will be the large distances from everyone. You'll get bored as hell after a while if you don't maintain your relationships with your middle school friends. Not being able to meet many new people is hellish. Everyone gets kind of boring eventually with grade sizes of 70 or less. Any new inside jokes will get killed by people who don't get them in a matter of days.

Overall
The 4 years there will be kind of a bitch but if you get in and are smart enough to go then you don't really have any other choice.

Former Student Definition: the school sucks. dont send your kids there, and older siblings, for your younger brothers and sisters sakes, dont send them there either. its a school set up with a power basis of cash bribes to get certain kids through positions where they would have failed in a normal school. its a school where kids are so stuck in their own bubble that they almost lose track of real life and think they are the "bomb". i would say the education i received there was that of a middle school level (boiling water in chemistry? plotting x-y points on a graph in pre-calculus?). the faculty wields their power in a hungry way, and love to punish students without cause. suspensions are thrown out for students working in labs, and expulsions are given for practical jokes on Facebook. not to mention that a lot of the students there are rich faggots who spend their time lounging around in point loma or la jolla on the beaches, then complain about their stressful lives when they are given a math assignment. every, and i mean every, kid that has heard of the school either busts up laughing or raises their eyebrows and wonders what kind of kid would go there. so, to sum it up, high tech high sucks. oh and most of the people there can suck it, too.
Public School Kid: Hey, what school do you go to?
HTH Kid: I go to High Tech High! Aren't I awesome?
Public School Kid: Nah, you're a fag.

HTH Kid: Hey, lets have a party and play drinking games, only the drinks will be Monster and not beer!
other HTH Kids: yeah! beer and drugs are only for deadbeat immigrants!
HTH Kid: Oh I'm so drunk off of this monster!
Public School Kid: Fags..

HTH Kid: OMG dean this person posted an ugly picture of me on Facebook!
Dean of HTH: Don't worry, we'll expel him.

Formal Definition: The Gary And Jerri-Ann Jacobs High Tech High is a charter high school in the Point Loma, San Diego CA area that attempts to use a new methodology of education to give students more "hands-on" experience for their future careers.

Former Student Definition: the school sucks. dont send your kids there, and older siblings, for your younger brothers and sisters sakes, dont send them there either. its a school set up with a power basis of cash bribes to get certain kids through positions where they would have failed in a normal school, as well as social outcasts who join together creating misery in the air. its a school where kids are so stuck in their own bubble that they almost lose track of real life and think they are the "bomb". i would say the education i received there was that of a middle school level (boiling water in chemistry? plotting x-y points on a graph in pre-calculus?). the faculty wields their power in a hungry way, and love to punish students without cause. suspensions are thrown out for students working in labs, and expulsions are given for practical jokes on Facebook.

The school where you realize, nerd is a four letter word, a six figure salary, and all of your friends. Only the fourth circle of hell if you feel that sports are what makes your life worth living.
Zomg, we're at High Tech High let's go play DnD at lunch!

A school where a right brained or left brained student will feel right at home - if they can keep up with the work!
Missing a day can make it a living hell if you don't try and catch up immediately. Procrastination is our worst nightmare.
The only people who hate the school are the ones who didn't bother to try, and waited until the night before to do a semester-long project.
A good High Tech High student knows what's TRULY important.
