Tenafly Public School District Reviews
I have been in the Tenafly Public School District since I was in Kindergarten and have loved it. The clubs and activities throughout middle school and elementary school are less prevalent, however, in high school, it is easy to join clubs and many clubs are a low time commitment as they take place during lunch. There is not that much school spirit, however, as someone who is not involved in sports, I may not notice it as much. They have excellent resources, especially regarding mental health, as they have many programs in place including an in-school therapist with care-plus.
TPS has a great culture - teachers and administrators are incredibly nurturing, actively encouraging students to speak up in class and drive their own learning. This support network makes it easy to succeed if you are determined, but, more importantly, it makes going to class enjoyable. Though the atmosphere can be high-pressure at times, I never found it overwhelming. Students and teachers tended to have fun in class, constantly joking with one another. I loved my experience in the Tenafly public school system, but I think it really is what you make of it - many students did go on to attend pedigree colleges. The worst thing about the TPS network is the glaring lack of demographic diversity.
Tenafly is a great place to learn and has provided me with various academic and athletic opportunities that I am grateful for. The school district has also brought me closer to my friends and immersed me in high school life. The only thing I wish was that Tenafly had more school spirit, but I think that is getting better with time.
