Tuscarora School District Reviews

I loved going to school there but, I had really bad English and math teachers while attending this school. I was not properly prepared for college which set me back. Also, this school cares way to much about sports and not enough on the arts. This makes it very hard to keep the arts in school alive. Maybe one day they will realize that the sports are just as important as the arts.

This district has great teachers who truly care about our education and want to see us succeed. The district is very thoughtful and is focused on giving us the best education possible.
More diversity. The teachers need to want to be there to make a difference not just for tenure. I would like to see more involvement in the community as well
