    Extracurriculars at Pittsburgh Science & Technology Academy: We had different programs in our school like environmental and energy, engineering classes, and health classes. Being able to participate in programs such as these did show us some college level stuff, but overall the basics. There are a lot of fun classes, but if you are not inspired to participate in the classes you won't learn anything. I believe most of the people there just wasted their time.

    Teachers at Pittsburgh Science & Technology Academy: I felt like most of the teachers there did not care if you passed of failed. When you go to ask for help some of the teachers would tell you they don't have time. They did stay up on their grading. They did try to get along with some of the student during class time, but to me they did not try hard enough to get along with everyone. The teachers at the school do know a lot about what their doing, but they give special teachings and side training to the kids they liked the most. To me the school was all about favoritism.

    Teachers at CAPA - Creative & Performing Arts: Most of the teachers are the best. The vocal major teachers had an immense amount of knowledge and years of experience teaching and being involved in music. When asking them questions, they were so knowledgeable and more than happy to help the students. The academic teachers are the same way.
