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.

Many of the teachers are phenomenal! I'm a band member and even with the new high school prioritizing the band is not something they do. I'm very disappointed they allowed other clubs to expand, but not the band, even as we grow to 150+ members.
Tahoma School District is one of the best schools when it comes to academics and sports. When it comes to diversity and school culture, we are lacking. I would not say my school is a community, because when it comes down to it, not many of us like each other. Our pep rallies and football games lack in spirit, only Freshman attend events like school dances or spring fling to try it out. But when it comes to the students as individuals, I think we have many bright students with promising futures.
