I think that the activities, music program, and sports programs are indeed good. There is a variety of activities and clubs to join. The teachers are great at Tea and insure that every student has the chance to succeed. The teachers make the academics decent here at Tea. I however would like to see the culture change in a positive way. I would like to see the people come together and support one another in a positive way. I also believe that some of the honors classes could improve and increase college readiness. Overall, I believe that Tea Area High School has an average rating.

Tea is an awesome school to attend because the whole community is centered around school sports, arts, and activities. Going to Tea Area High School makes you feel like you belong to something and that you have a purpose. They are starting to offer various AP, and honors classes but I do wish that there would be more!
The Tea Area School District is outstanding. They have a program called Titan Hour, which takes place at the end of the day around 2:40. You get put on Titan Hour if you do not complete your homework. If this happens, at 2:40 you go to a classroom and complete it. If you are not on Titan Hour and you are an upperclassmen, you can leave for the day. If you are an underclassmen, you have to stay in your homeroom. The Tea Area School District also has plenty of activities for people to do. They have band, sports, clubs, you name it! It is a really fun and great school district.
