Tamaqua Area School District Reviews
Tamaqua Area School District (TASD) is the only district that I have been exposed to, but I fully believe that it is an overall great school. I have challenged myself with honors classes as well as with extracurriculars and thus far have been successful. The honors classes and AP classes provided are both challenging and effective. The faculty is very encouraging, compassionate, and will sacrifice their free time to help you if you are struggling with the class. Furthermore, the language arts department has done an excellent job for preparing their students for the SATs and with writing essays. Aside from core courses, TASD also provides a variety of electives which allow the student to explore subjects that they may have an unknown passion for. Additionally, TASD has a wide range of extracurriculars and sports that are open to all students. As an upcoming senior, I am pleased to say that my years at Tamaqua have been educational as well as fun!
After attending this school district for a good portion of my life, i have concluded this final review of the district in general. Tamaqua is academically overlooked by most people. The curriculum in the schools are surprisingly challenging for most of the students. There are also some inexperienced teachers in the facility. Contrary, there are mostly nice teachers that can really explain a lesson clearly. Clubs and sports are somewhat above adequate. There is not a large variety of food, but there is some good quality food-depending where you are in town. Unfortunately, I would not consider Tamaqua a very safe town. There is a drug problem more than violence in Tamaqua-specifically heroin. Overall, I would consider tamaqua an average tow with its ups and downs here and there.
I have had an incredible experience with this district. Tamaqua offers excellent extracurricular activities such as band, chorus, and various athletic programs. The administration truly cares, and it shows! Thank you, Tamaqua High!
