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.
