Talawanda High School Reviews

All Categories
I moved to Oxford, Ohio in June of 2016. I started my senior year at Talawanda High School in August. I have been to seven different schools in my life, and Talawanda would be first on my list. The academics are great. If you need help there are certain teachers appointed to help at different times. The teachers and students are very welcoming and caring. Starting over your senior year is hard, but they made it easier for me. Mr. Derringer brought me into the FFA group here at Talawanda, and that is where I found my home. Since I've been here I have set better goals for myself, I've applied and been accepted to my dream college. I have made some amazing friends, and met some amazing people. At the end of the day, I wouldn't trade it for anything.
Review Talawanda High School
Overall, Talawanda High School was a good high school. It is is newer building, so it has nice amenities and it high quality. I would mostly change the social aspects of the school. It gets very clique-y and not always the most accepting. The sports teams and classes are high quality and nearly all of them want you to thrive within the classrooms as well as have fun. There are many opportunities for clubs and an array of classes.
Talawanda High School offers multiple fitness opportunities for both boys and girls, including sports such as lacrosse, hockey, golf, and many more. Sports without a boys and girls team can be co-ed offering opportunity to everyone. Students are very involved in the athletics program, and I would say that about half of the students in the school play some type of sport. As well as being involved, the teams are good! THS is known especially for excellence in women's basketball, track and field, swimming and diving, golf, women's tennis, and volleyball. Having a newer high school has given the school newer facilities allowing sports performance and involvement to increase. The new facilities also offer more practice space for current and new sports teams. To top it all off, the school spirit is off the charts! Who doesn't love to cheer on a good sports team who pulls out a win with all of your classmates?
