I started to attend that school back in September 2017 to finish my Senior year. Since I was a Senior, I heard the school offer a "Graduating Class Treatment" in May 2018 like a field trip to Six Flags over Texas, Prom, Senior Breakfast, and finally, graduation on June 1st. The classes I've taken were a complete breeze due to my completion of the core subjects from my Freshmen through Junior years. When the Graduating Class Treatment arrived, I had so much fun. The trip to Six Flags makes me want to relive the moment again, Prom was magical, and Senior Breakfast felt grand. On June 1st, I felt very excited and at the same time, nervous when the ceremony began. I also cried on that day because my dad will never get to see me in the royal blue cap and gown. He died back in October 2014 due to brain hemorrhage. Now I'm on the path to make more goals to accomplish, John Tyler will be the one and always the best school I attended.
John Tyler High School has arich heritage for Athletics. It's the Home of Hall of Famer Earl Campbell. We are in the top 50 schools that the NFL recruit from. But many times we are ovelooked for our educational saviness. We have produced doctors, lwyers, educators, administrators, business owners, pastors and community leaders that make a difference. John Tyler offers so many opportuniteis for the we the student to be engaged in social readiness such as Student Council, Arts,Leadership boards and community iniatives. We have a new principal within the last 2 years are so concerned about our students readiness for college and the real world. She holds our teachers to be professional and caring. It's a great school to be apart of and I am honored that I will be a 2019 Graduate.
