Tenafly High School creates ambitious, intelligent, accepting, and politically aware students who often excel at the nation's top universities and jobs. Students are leaders themselves, often changing the school and the community with their own actions and projects. Most, but not all, teachers treat their students like adults, fostering a very independent and almost college like environment. Students also have a lot of freedom during the school day to do homework and leave campus.
While academically Tenafly is amazing, college readiness and grades is the administrations only interest. A substantial amount of pressure is put upon all the students. This immense pressure causes intense competition among top students and makes students less interested in grades feel insecure and often unintelligent. This preoccupation with grades also takes focus away from sports and school spirit and has led to a prevalent drug and alcohol culture.
Tenafly High School provides a great science research program. There are always one or two schools police officers around who provide safety. The courses in Tenafly are rigorous like the many AP classes Tenafly teaches. There are a numerous amount of well founded clubs like math club and constant new clubs being created like robotics club. Tenafly should increase lunch quality like most high schools, however, it would probably be more costly.
