Tulsa Public School prepared me to further my studies in medicine. The classes that I took were recommended by my counselor. I worked diligently to complete my class work and to pursue additional educational activities to further enhance my learning. I was recommended to use the Khan academy site also. This site enable me to understand some of the concepts of mathematics. With this understanding, I was able to assist my fellow students in their learning as well.
TPS also offered extracurricular activities such as tennis I was able to play at the Varsity level and entered several competitions with excellent scores. This social event enabled me to make friends out of the school atmosphere. I still keep in contact with some of the players.

I honestly would not recommend any high school within Tulsa except Booker T. Washington high school and the private high schools. The education system there is pretty screwed up and left me and a lot of others unprepared for college/university. There was once a time years and years ago when my high school, Central High school, and others were known to have graduating classes being sent to highly respected colleges, but now we are left with the majority of students disrespecting teachers very badly, having absences over 50+ in one semester, and getting into 5+ fights, etc... And the worst part is those same exact students get to graduate and be able to be apart of National Honors Society and have other honorary positions because some of the administrators/teachers there believe that being their "friend" would be easier than disciplining them.
The process of main-streaming students should be discarded. By placing problem students in the same classroom as those who are not; you severely hamper the learning potential of students who could easily excel.
While I was attending school, we had constant interruptions and distractions from some of these main-streamed, problem students. If they had been placed into a separate classroom from us; our classroom would have gone along without interruption or distraction and these other students could have been given more personalized attention. Thus, allowing everyone a better learning environment.
