About This School
Charter schools are public schools, but differ from traditional public schools in that they are independent and are operated by educators, parents, community leaders, educational entrepreneurs, or others. Funding for charter schools is based on designated local or state educational organizations. Those organizations are responsible for monitoring and assessing the quality and effectiveness of education, but permit the schools to operate outside of the traditional public school education system. See High Technical Middle School's test results to learn more about school performance.

High Technical Middle School Reviews
If your child has good test scores they will have fun here, but they won't learn much! If your child is struggling and needs a little extra help, get ready because every day when they sit down to do their work, they will be called into the office and suspended for stupid made up reasons!
The staff even go as far as to lie about your child. They get rid of all students that need extra help by lying about them and any way they can. My child is an honest kid and was under extreme stress trying to avoid these false allegations and focus on his work. He was allowed to be followed and harassed by other students, pushed, hit, kicked, talked about, cursed at, and accused of doing things he didn't do.
If your child tests low after a year of not learning anything there, they will be lied about and set up by the students and staff for suspensions that are not legitimate, while other students will be allowed to do whatever they want without a single consequence! High Tech Middle School is not good because they expel kids who are innocent in order to keep their scores high. They will do whatever they want to your kid and you will not be able to do a single thing about it!
The school is good, but the discipline is not handed out evenly or fairly.
High Tech Middle School is pretty good.
