Tenafly High School Reviews

All Categories
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.

Overall, Tenafly High School is an extremely competitive school. It is very motivating to be part of such a hardworking community of students and staff. From music to sports, the students work their hardest to aspire for their future careers. It is great place!!!
My experience at Tenafly High School was okay, but could have been a lot better. This is because there were many instances where friends would get into arguments, and the school administration would not do anything to solve the problems but instead, just punish whoever they believed should be punished. The teachers at THS were either highly motivated and intelligent, or not motivated at all and did just the bare minimum, sometimes even less. On a positive note, THS had a very expansive selection of clubs and activities, and the athletic and music programs were very advanced. Overall, Tenafly High School is a pretty good school, but I believe there must be a few changes made in order to call it a great school.
