Teachers and coaches are invested in making the school great. Teachers can relate to HS students. Plenty of opportunities to participate in sports, clubs, leadership programs and honor societies. Everyone is accepted for the person they are. There are all types of students and they accept each other and work side by side each other. There is tremendous school spirit. Many students attend sporting events, concerts, etc. Students want to do well in school and help and support each other. There is a feeling of community and family throughout the school. The academic classes ate challenging but fair. They have all different levels to support all of th students and their individual abilities. The building is maintained in a nice way and there are many renovations being done to keep it up to date.
Tappan Zee High School is a large school where everybody gets to know each other through connectivity in the classroom, extracurricular activities, and athletic events. There is always a great turnout at sports games and for art happenings such as open mics for musicians and poets. Student involvement plays a big role in getting things done. However, the teachers are always willing to listen and provide for student projects. Overall, everyone I know has loved their experience with Tappan Zee High School and was well-prepared for college.
Tappan Zee High School is a very nice school with lots of opportunity to further one's education. For four years students are given help to follow any career path they may be interested in. Whether it is a career in music, engineering, teaching or art, TZHS offers classes students can participate in throughout their high school journey. Not to mention the many sports and clubs students can get involved with. The teachers and other staff are very friendly and will gladly help students out with any problem they may be facing. Overall my experience at Tappan Zee was great. Personally I had an amazing time, made lots of new friends, participated in sports, and learned quite a lot.
