High School of Telecommunication Arts and Technology

XHENETE SHEPARD, PRINCIPAL
Total Students: 1,355

At High School of Telecommunication Arts and Technology (HSTAT), we believe that all students should take the most challenging courses possible, because the best preparation for postsecondary education is four years of challenging work in high school. Our school’s name is somewhat misleading: we certainly believe that the ability to use the tools of telecommunication is essential for all our students, but college preparation is our focus.

2 cool things about HSTAT

  • A very high percentage of our students participate in after-school athletic teams.
  • We offer a special college preparatory program for accelerated students.
