Tuscarora School District Reviews

The experience is the average high school experience. It would be preferred if they spent more time preparing those actually headed for college in lieu of forcing everyone to show up for dulled-down meetings for those that are on track, but it is dulled down to the point where it is nearly-useless for those on track for college already. Could use some improvement in these areas.

I had a great relationship with the majority of the teachers, some of whom I still talk to even after graduation. There were a lot of different types of students at the school, but each class caused more problems than the one before it. The school did have a lot of extracurricular options.
I love how small the area is! My graduation class was only 140 or so kids.The staff knew everyone by name.
