    Teachers: All of the teachers at this school are knowledgeable. Each student has an opportunity to complete work in the classroom or after school any day of the week. Most teachers go above and beyond to help every student.

    Teachers: Most teachers at my school at least try to relate to students and integrate real world lessons in the lessons. However, some teachers do not and that is why I cannot give a five star rating.

    Teachers: Almost all of the teachers who work at Sussex Tech are commited to giving a high quality education and connecting with students. I know in the English department the staff incorporates many teaching styles into a simple lesson. Of course they will have the usual class participation, but they also work with peer reviewing, and incorporate artistic and creative elements into some lessons and projects. Most teachers grade consistently and know when students are struggling and trying their best to complete an assignment or understand a concept and work with them accordingly.

    Health & Safety: The school is pretty safe. We have had a few students bring paraphernalia but that was taken care of quick because we have no tolerance for it.
