Tamalpais Union High School District Reviews

3 reviews
Tamalpais Union High School District did a very good job of preparing students for college. Most classes offered where college preparatory. There where lots of available resources to help with the standardized testing and college application process, such as study groups, workshops, and opportunities to receive college essay revisions. The only down side to all of this is that it made college seem like the only option, while it isn't the best option for many students. Even though I am happily enrolled as a freshman at the University of Washington this fall, I would have still liked more guidance in seeking out other post-high school options.

I love how as a student, I know I'm getting prepared for college. The College and Career Center has help me immensely with the college application process. My classes are challenging, but I am truly captivated by what I am learning. I do wish that Tamalpais High School was more diverse and worked on inclusion on the campus. Other than that, I have really enjoyed attending Tam high.
Tamalpais High School District has been incredible. The teachers, students, and parents are all very invested in their students' learning and it creates a positive academic environment. Unfortunately, with this high achieving academic environment comes some stressors. Drugs, alcohol and anxiety are common in the district, but if you handle yourself correctly they are easily avoided.
