I’ve been a student at John Tyler High School sense my freshman year back in 2014. The school has really developed and grown bigger sense then. All teachers and faculty members persuaded students to be more involved in school. Some of the classrooms don’t have the best resources, but they’re building a new school this up coming year so I hope that that changes. I personally won’t get the chance to see it because I’m graduate this year, god willing. This year we have a new principle and she’s really down to business, as people describe her as, unlike or last principle that honestly didn’t really care much for the school. The school has really grown throughout the years and I hope that the students, our next generation, take advantage of their resources because they are the future and we should guide them. With this being said, being a part of John Tyler High, a true Cujo, will be the best time of your high school life.

John Tyler is a very diverse, populated high school. Like many other schools, it has its weaknesses. These weaknesses include, not very much parent involvement, non supporting staff, and sometimes staff does not know how to control students. Other than that, John Tyler high school is an amazing school, and I’m proud to be a John Tyler lion
At John Tyler High, there is an adequate mix of teachers who try their best and teachers who only try to keep themselves covered from trouble. As a student, I have had my fair share of both and it's frustrating sometimes. There's also a problem with the introduction of electronic/technological learning. The teachers try to incorporate apps and web pages that we can use for resources, however, some try to make it a requirement which does not fit the whole class. Having class mates and being a former student who had no way of getting to technology besides being at school was a real barrier when teachers began to make some of their test grades online assignments.
