North St. Paul-Maplewood-Oakdale School District Reviews
At Tartan Senior High school it is a lot more than just a school. Tartan is culturally diverse community. Just entering the school and being around so many different people teaches many things, like how to treat different kinds of people, for example, minorities or students with autism, ADHD or any disability. I truly enjoy coming to school and learning from the teachers here. There is not one teacher who gets tired of explaining the same question over and over, as long as the student ends up understanding the question. Every adult here really makes it clear that school is not about the grade or the right answer but it is about understanding how you got the right answer to get that good grade.
I like the environment, I attended for four years, and took many advanced, AP, and CIS courses. I like the variety of courses offered for upperclassmen, because you can choose what you want to do. It makes it possible to move toward a trade, or move toward furthering your education. I do not like the way the administration runs the school, they can make the school feel like a trap at times, and I have had bad experiences with them limiting expression in the choir and drama departments. Also, the dress code is an issue, but this is an issue at most schools. Girls are objectified when simply wearing a tank top, and boys are essentially allowed to walk around with their entire chests exposed.
I love learning in the environment provided. Including all the work given, all the staff makes it easy to understand. I also love how every staff and student are treated repectfully!
