Tenafly High School Reviews

Tenafly High School is an amazing school with phenomenal teachers that are genuine about both teaching and their students. The teachers make it their duty to be inclusive in their methods of teaching and that creates an environment in which I loved to be immersed in. However, Tenafly High School has a problem with school spirit, as its students take organized events, such as the Olympics, for granted.
Tenafly High School also has a problem with students Juuling in the bathroom. I feel that the problem is not being combated effectively by the administrators who are resorting to indirect methods such as posting posters and alerting parents instead of having officers directly infiltrating the bathrooms more often. From a student's perspective, the administration seems to mismanage the school's money, having accumulated debt.
Although there are some flaws, Tenafly High School provides a friendly learning environment and fosters an inclusive atmosphere for students.

I liked Tenafly High for the fact that it prepares you very well for college. Studies are rigorous, and most teachers in the school are top tier. However, the science department lacks in really engaging teachers. There are distinct cliques within the school, which aren't so pleasant. Overally good studies, low school spirit.
Tenafly is an amazing school with hundreds of opportunities for students. No matter what you're interested in, you can find a class or club that matches your interests and if you don't-- create your own! The academics is also phenomenal and the reason most people move to this town.
