Tahoma Senior High School Reviews

It's fine. Nearly all of the math teachers are horrible and only look good on paper. Lots of students are involved with drugs and everyone knows the second floor middle bathrooms are where you go to get them (which sucks). Most of the teachers are amazing people who really focus on helping students succeed and the administration is good for the most part. The school really stresses future readiness, which gets annoying and repetitive, but they have a wide variety of resources available to help students figure out what to do with their life, get financial support, and receive scholarships.

Tahoma High School is committed to preparing their students for their future, whether that be going to college, a trade, a gap year, or working full time. Administration and staff are both dedicated to help students in anyway possible, whether that be during Power Hour(lunchtime), or before and after school. There are many sports, clubs, and activities for students to be involved and better their community. The atmosphere at Tahoma High School is encouraging and positive from both students and staff. THS offers many CTE (Career Technical Education) classes to help students figure out what they are interested in. They offer Sports Medicine 1,2, and 3, floral design, business management, welding, and many other engaging and fun classes.
Tahoma High School's Administration and Staff are committed to preparing their students for their future, however, giving them endless opportunities to succeed in high school. Their future ready programs guide students to have a plan post high school whether it be a college, trade, gap year, or community service. Offering multiple CTE (Career and Technical Education) classes allows students to get a feel of what their future career could look like. I was able to take Sports Medicine 1, 2, and 3 which piqued my interest in the healthcare field. They bring in an abundant amount of external resources to make ensure their students are set up to succeed. Every lunch, students have the opportunity to get help from teachers, meet in a club, or go to the college or career professionals that are at the school, helping students. The atmosphere is encouraging and positive, despite how large the school is.
