Tahoma School District Reviews

28 reviews

The Tahoma School District had great potential to continue growing into a stellar school district. The population in this area is largely professionals, who care a lot about their kids. The community invested in a new high school, and a new superintendent took over. In that time I witnessed and experienced bullying, by a faculty member, and turned to the administration to report it. Nothing happened, so I turned to the school board. Again, no action. The problem is systemic, and sadly resulted in me switching schools. The faculty member also violated my FERPA rights and the district admitted this, but there was no corrective action against the teacher.
There are some very dedicated teachers, and I'm grateful for their contribution to my education.

I graduated from Tahoma in 2016. Overall my experience there was great. I had a lot of friends and had a lot good times. Academically I was pushed in the plethora of AP classes that gave us a taste of what college was like. Now as far as changes that would have liked to see, one was the treatment I received during my senior year in AP calculus AB with a teacher named Dave Wright. All throughout the year I struggled to keep my grade above passing. Trust me his methods could not justify the ends. Another problem with Tahoma that is very wide spread is its lack of diversity. It must have been about 80% white and the last 20% were divided between Asian and African American students. This an issue that the students see all the time as they go through the hall ways. Something to note is that they did update facilities just this year for the class of 2018 and with it many structural changes to classes and scheduling.
Tahoma School District was wonderful as far as safety, there was a lot of money in the area, and the teachers were generally passionate about their subjects. Many teachers were National Board Certified which was impressive. Overall, Tahoma schools are a great place to grow up in and develop future ready skills. Tahoma also encourages many leadership skills and diversification of interests, making sure each student had a place where they could feel free to learn as they pleased.
