Tahoma School District Reviews

Tahoma School District is a fairly diverse school district, that provides quality education for every student. Furthering students education to prepare for college. Future Ready curriculum is required for every student. This curriculum helps students as early as freshman start looking into their futures. AP and College classes are offered making Tahoma highly rated when it comes to academics. This academic advantage is a true and brilliant advantage Tahoma has. Overall in my opinion Tahoma could improve when it comes to assemblies and monthly spirit events. Some of the assemblies are poorly put together, making students dread any leadership activities. If more students engage and enjoyed leadership generated activities Tahoma would be a more secure and a well rounded school. Putting that aside, Tahoma gives a unique experience to each of their students by having a remarkable high level education system and a comfortable accepting community.

Tahoma School district is prompt to have students exceed and accommodates to the many learning situations of individuals while incorporating important life skills so students can choose the right path when graduation day approaches.
Starting in elementary grades Tahoma hosts assemblies to identify students and reward students with ribbons and a sticker showing specific accomplishments in their work in the classroom, identifying word such as “metacognition, persistence or risk-taker” allows students to feel recognized and encourage this type of learning behavior inside and outside of the classroom.
Before heading into middle school selected students take an advanced math placement test. The test allowed certain able students throughout the district to be one year ahead in math courses than other students in the same grade.
I moved here last year as a Junior. Moving anywhere as a teenager is very difficult. I signed up for cross country right away and the students around me were so welcoming and made me feel very comfortable. I had an awesome junior year and now I will be a Senior this year. I am also part of the Bear Crew that will welcome incoming Freshman and new students. Who better to welcome these fresh new faces than someone who has been in their shoes!
