The Hutch Tech Patrons Association serves as a support to Hutch Tech High School. Our goals are to develop a better understanding between parents, teachers and the community; to assist in the promotion of school activities and publicize the educational program of the school; and to work with the administration and teachers in efforts to improve the educational program. We encourage all parents and teachers from the school to join the Patrons Association, and we welcome your participation.

Site Based Management Team
The Site Based Management Team (SBMT) holds monthly meetings. Any parent, teacher, or student is welcome, and we are currently actively recruiting teachers and parents to get involved in helping the school meet our goals and provide feedback on important decisions.
The Team meets in the Library before or after school. New members will decide meeting time. A zoom link can be provided for parents if it is helpful. The link will be posted on the home page of the Hutch Tech Website, just before the meeting begins.
The SBMT is a great way for stakeholders to communicate, provide input, and work on improving our school. If you have any questions, feel free to come to the next meeting!
Hutch Tech held an open house for prospective students on Thursday, October 12, 2023. Hutch Tech has been an institution in this city for over 100 years. With a high graduation rate, the most AP offerings of any school in the BPS, and a school culture and climate that is safe and welcoming to all, Hutch Tech is a great choice!
Please encourage any grade 8 students from the City of Buffalo to register to take our entrance exam.
Please see the homepage and the Guidance Page for more information about what makes our school unique and for dates of the entrance exams.
Second Marking Period Progress Report Grades Close on 12/15
If your child is failing any classes, or not performing at a level preparing them for graduation, college, or careers, please know that the school is open for academic support every single morning and afternoon except Friday p.m.
The Tech Success Program provides academic support in every subject area, and any student is welcome to attend either before or after school. Please help your child understand that their learning is their own, and they have the power to control the outcome of their educational success.
See the home page for the daily schedule of academic support: The Tech Success program.
Every Hutch Tech Student Should Join a Club or Sport
Research shows that adolescents need to have a firm sense of belonging at school to be successful. If your child does not stay after school for extra help, clubs, or sports, they are missing out on a key component of their education.
Hutch Tech offers over 20 clubs and several sports each season. It is expected that students participate in something consistently while they are a student at Hutch Tech. If you need help directing your student to available clubs, please email Mrs. Brandjes at email@example.com
