Tippecanoe School Corporation Reviews

I like my school and the opportunities given there (activities, clubs, AP classes), but it could have been improved. The athletics department had too much funding and the Arts/Performing Arts programs were underfunded. Also, I think that the teachers are not getting paid as much as they should so the quality of teachers could be improved. In addition, there were no IB program offered at my school.

The people are quirky and fun. There are no real "cliques." There also a number of outstanding teachers that give the corporation an impressive look. One thing I would like to see change, or at least be considered, is the time when school starts. Young children and Teenagers need at least ten hours of sleep because their brains are still developing and, for a student like myself, they are given 7-5 hours depending upon the amount of homework given and extracurricular activities.
I go to McCutcheon High School in the Tippecanoe School Corporation district. It is a very good school. I like how friendly everyone is, how caring the teachers and administration are, and how involved with the students everyone is. On the other hand they do lack on equality. Not all but some of the teachers favorite the athletes, so if you are not in a sport they do not put as much attention into you.
