I have learned so many new things since I have moved to this high school. Teamwork is done very well and there are numerous groups you have the opportunity to join. Sports are always available and everyone is encouraged to join something! There are so many students who are willing to help others, and there is an abundance of nice students. The staff are always there to help individuals who need it, and who need guidance.

I love Tahlequah High School. I came my Junior year and have had an excellent experience! Our football team was District Champions this year, our band is awesome, and our teachers are top notch! Our cafeteria offers several choices for lunch each day. Over all, my only complaint is that I didn't go to school here until my Junior year. I have loved every second!
Overtime, I was able to form many wonderful memories at Tahlequah High. While our school district may struggle financially at times, the devotion that the THS faculty carries towards its school and students is truly inspiring. Many teachers strive for absolute excellence in their classrooms with what resources they are given, and work hastily to be involved in the academic achievement of their students. The programs I was involved in (National Honors Society, Business Professionals of America, English Club, Honors Choir, Art Club, The Dance Team), allowed me to dive deeper into the inner workings of the school system. The pure academic vigor of many pf the students at THS if remarkable to say the least. Many students I've personally known are incredible scholars and athletes. As with any school, THS has had its ups and down, but overall, the school works to be the best it can be, and I hope it continues to prosper.
