    I graduated from this school in 2011. Some of my fondest memories in my life come from this school. We did a lot of stupid things but learned a lot of important things. I myself had a fun time. There are some days where I wish I could go back. It's a fun place to learn. 80% of the teachers are good to excellent. 10% our average 10% are bad. The lunches suck and considering they have a culinary class making it there's lots of room for improvement. it seems as though as time goes on the students become more and more behaved. When I first rolled in to the school in 2007 the place was a nut house. Fight breaking out in the hallway kids crowd surfing streakers rivalries between districts. I remember freshman year there was a big fight between Bristol borough and Morrisvile. This was the culture of the school and I enjoyed the laughs that people gave us that helped us get through the day even better. By the time I was a senior all of it vanished. The administration wanted a better reputation. I'll never forget my freshman year in this school . by far the most fun year in the school. even though yer at the bottom of the barrel i lived the final days of what Tech truly was.

    We are new but the transition was great! My teen loves the school teachers & classes offered. This guy is up early ready & out the door with a smile on his face. Nothing better than a happy teen!

    My daughter is a junior soon to be a senior in this school. She went to Catholic school up until 8th grade and she had a very easy time of transitioning into this school (public school for the first time ever). She absolutely LOVES her school. She is ranked in the top 10 of the Class of 2013. She is currently enrolled in ALL Honors & AP classes. I am not going to lie you canNOT be lazy in this school... the 6 day rotation seems to work really well but be warned you WILL get homework from your academic teachers to do while you are on your technical rotation and vice versa. I am so proud of how well she is doing. The teachers are all very down to earth but are stern when need be. I can't rate the school before my child attended there but I can say over the last 3 years it has been an awesome high school for my child. I am hoping I can get my 7th grader in there for high school as well!! Well done Tech!!

    I am a student in the Green Energy Technologies Program. We just won the State of PA Gold Medal in Electronics Technology. We have over 19 students that earned National Certifications from the ETA in Electronics. The program rewards up to 15 College credits. This School and program are the best kept secret in PA Schools that work.

    My daughter graduated in 2008. She was Salutatorian (2nd in her class). She's currently a freshman at Temple University(Dean's List). Don't believe the stories about not being able to get into colleges. She had her pick of many including Penn State (main campus). My son is currently a student at BCTHS and he too is following in her footsteps (2nd in his class). SAT scores are more important then the name of the school.

    BCTHS is a good school. The 6 days of academics 6 days of shop is hard for students to keep up with their work. I think that half the year should be academics and the other half technical. It would be much easier for students. Some teachers are too relaxed and others are much too strict. One rule is that students must wear boots to their technical area. Some students need that but others like creative arts students don't need boots. Photography students don't need to wear uniforms because none of them work with chemicals but the school is trying to insist that they buy uniform T-Shirts. Over all they school is a good one but sometimes it isn't.

    I am glad my child is attending the school. it has helped him/her out so much. It has put him/her on the right track for his/her tech shop and hopefully he/she will be able to go to a decent college. My one problem I had was when he/she first started in ninth grade he/she was put in a math class which he/she excelled in and new everything from 8th grade from his home school. They should have more tracks (levels of abilities) in math. Also they should have some kind of excurricular music program.

    BCTHS can be seen as one of the best technical high schools in the country however it is not a very good school to attend if you want to go to college.

    Wonderful alternative to Bristol Township Schools. Comprehensive Technical high school; academics and technical training under one roof.

    My daughter graduated from here and went on to college where she excelled. My biggest problem with the school is the # of students who are major discipline problems. They hurt the educational quality. The shops are great; the academics are more than adequate. The '6 days in shop/6 days in academics' is hard to take.
