Information Technology High School

Grades: 9-12

Our Insights

What’s Special

Students learn web design, video production or Cisco cybersecurity

The Downside

Some safety concerns

Students at Information Technology High School (Info Tech) study computers and technology in addition to the standard high school curriculum. The school is divided into academies and students may specialize in areas such as web design, video production or Cisco Cybersecurity.

The academies allow students to specialize in a particular area and gain professional skills. Students choose an academy at the end of their freshman year, which they stick with through graduation. The school is adding instruction in commercial arts and gaming, according to its annual Comprehensive Educational Plan.

Advanced Placement courses are offered in several subjects. Students may earn college credit for some of their technology courses through a partnership with Queensborough Community College. Students may earn additional college credit by taking free courses at Queens College and LaGuardia Community College.

Extracurricular activities include junior and senior bands as well as a nice range of clubs and PSAL sports teams.

Joseph Reed became principal in 2012 after working as the assistant principal of operations at the school for eight years.

There are some safety concerns. Fewer students report feeling safe in the building than is typical for high schools citywide.

Info Tech opened in September 2003 in a new building with a spacious lobby, large classrooms, and multiple computer labs. There is a colorful cafeteria and a well-stocked library, but no auditorium.

SPECIAL EDUCATION: The school offers self-contained and ICT (integrated co-teaching) classes.
