The name stood out, Aug 26, 2009
|I went to Southern Nevada Vocational Technical Center High School all three years. This school helped me attain a dream at a young age. It was relaxed yet required discipline to learn. The teachers were happy to teach and the classes were not over crowded. I love my history/government class because it was 3 teachers combined so we had a variety of styles which made the class fun to learn in. All of my friends loved this school and we are all doing well for ourselves today. Not monetarily so much just well rounded. I served 22 years in the US Army so I am not rich but I owe a lot to this school. No one can ever say anything bad about this school around me without raising my dander! If i lived in Vegas with my children they would most definitely go there! Disregard the racial mix because it only enhanced my high school years.|

SNVTC - BEFORE THE NAME CHANGE, May 19, 2008
|I attended SNVTC from 1997-2001 and I have to say, that in that time, SNVTC was the school to go to. Many applied, but only a few got accepted. I'm not sure if it is academically the way they chose who attended, but I can tell you that all the students there were all pretty intelligent people. No one flunked; yeah we had a few bad apples, but who doesn't. Overall we all graduated. Not to mention, we had 23 valedictorians! That's the most I ever heard. Not because I attended this school or nothing, but I really feel that a student who attends this school is a step above the rest. The Staff was and I'm sure still is AWESOME.
The only down fall to SNVTC, is that it separates you from your friends growing up that you attended Junior High with. For some students it's really hard to cope with the "making new friends" aspect of attending this school, but for others it's not even an issue. Just depends on the kid.
I recommend Southern Nevada Vocational Technical Center for mentally strong young-adults who have a plan and are on schedule with their goals, or at least have an idea to what they want to do in the future.
SNVTC is most known for its Vocational Programs, as it should be. The Vocations they provide are great! From Graphic Design, Computer Animations, Health Occupations and the most popular Cosmetology. Visit their website and see what they offer. It's a REALLY GOOD SCHOOL!!!!
Thanks for your time.
