Tanner high school has taught me many valuable lessons over the 12 years I’ve attended. From the first day of kindergarten to my last day as a junior. Senior year is coming up in a few short months and I couldn’t be more excited. Although leaving high school will be very exciting, I will miss the days Tanner high has given me.

The past seven years I've been in Tanner were great. Teachers and staff are respectful and like to socialize with the students, also can't forget about my classmates who are there to help and socialize with and can work well in a team. Tanner is a diverse school and everyone gets along with one another. Students who are in a club or activity are disciplined and committed to it. One thing about the Tanner that helps students are the resources, No printer? We got you. No tutor? We also got you, they have everything you need to succeed, they wont let you face it alone.
My husband and I both attended THS and now our kids do! We love the sense of community and safety as well a the focus on college readiness.
