Tacoma School District Reviews
What I liked about Tacoma school districts is their strive for success in students. Throughout elementary and middle school they made sure each student did well and if they fell behind, teachers, and staff would help that student in multiple ways such as after school tutoring. In high school their was a lot more students who failed but this district made sure the students were able to catch up by summer school or online classes. I think that was very helpful because instead of not graduating, they found useful utilities to make sure students wouldn’t get held back but were able to graduate on time, even if they failed classes, there was still possibilities for them finish high school. Also, I liked the Programs they offered. I program I did was Trio and this program helped me evaluate which colleges were best for me, local, and best for my career goals.
I went To stadium high school then Kent school district then Foss high school. I love That the TPS district does everything they can to help you succeed, wether it’s in academics or they give you options if you don’t want to be in school. When I attended Stadium high school I was Eligible to get my first job and a career coach at that school helped me & is still guiding me even after high school! I’m usually the quiet person but a lot of people talked to me without hesitation . I noticed That if you’re failing a class you can come in right before finals or semester grades & the teacher will still do everything they can to make sure you pass ONLY if you’re willing. They try to encourage you to be the best you can be and never give up. I know what it feels like to feel as if you’re not smart enough or as good as other students so sometimes it’s hard.
I did like going to school in the Tacoma School District. I was in the Tacoma School District starting from Elementary and ending with High School. Each school was different, but I liked them all. However, starting in high school, my peers and I noticed that our high school seemed to care more about their sports program rather than their academic program. The faculty at Stadium High School do not show much recognition for the Running Start students. I was one of those Running Start students, and the faculty at Stadium are not happy to have Running Start students because we are using their money for us to get an associates degree at the same time of getting a high school diploma.
