    Sports & Fitness: A variety of athletic/fitness opportunities are offered at this school. Quite a bunch of students are involved, teams are good, there are some fans, school spirit is unnoticeable, athletic facilities are average.

    Teachers: Some teachers care, some don't; just like any other person in the world. Teachers are usually kind, but not all are approachable. Most teachers respect student ideas. Some teaching styles are easily understood but some are not. Pretty average.

    Administration & Policies: Dress code; it's there, but not very noticeable. I only see Juanita yell at students about the way they dress; and few other teachers. It's pretty flexible, to be honest. Hats are the only thing that students are told to take off; above knee-length skirts are sometimes allowed, no one really gets punished for it. Crop tops that are right below the chest are tolerated too. No one really talks about attendance.

    Overall Experience: My overall experience at this school so far is fair. Students are very diverse, which makes this school unique. In addition, there are over 5k students whom attend this school. If I could do it all over, I would've chosen a different school simply because there are too many students and overcrowding. I'd prefer a smaller student body so teachers and counselors can connect more with the students.

    Extracurriculars: There is a huge variety of clubs at Brooklyn Technical High School, and I believe every student should have an interest in at least a few clubs. The level of commitment varies per club, and clubs range from fun to helpful.
