I loved Tipton, I met some lifelong friends there and enjoyed playing multiple sports on a competitive team. The teachers went above and beyond for all students, allowing each person to be successful. There was a lot of opportunities for leaderships roles within the school as well. I would have liked to see more preparation for the ACT within the school.

Teachers were helpful before, after, and of course during school hours. Some went above and beyond the role as teachers and became life long role models.
I had a genuinely good experience at Tipton High. It was a journey well done. I enjoyed the tight-knit community that supported the high school in all of their endeavors. Coming from another school I was scared to be left out but everyone welcomed me with open hands and open hearts. Teachers at THS were always a huge help and went to what seemed like the ends of the Earth just to help me reach my full potential. If I would change one thing about Tipton it would be the credit that they give their staff. Tipton already does a fair job about praising their talented and gifted staff, but I believe they deserve more for the length they go for each student they encounter.
