Tea Area School District Reviews

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.
The majority of the teachers don't seem to fully care for their students. The administration also does not seem to care as much as they should. Smart students and athletes are preferred, and this is coming from a smarter student that noticed others not getting the same treatment. The music department is REALLY GOOD!
