Tenafly High School Reviews
Rating 3.91 out of 5 123 reviews
Great teachers and a variety of classes. I felt supported and academically challenged during my time there.
In general, I think THS is excellent academic wise. The education is great and I have had a good experience in terms of my academics. However, I think the school, and possibly the town, struggles socially. There is very little diversity, and I have noticed that the whole "school spirit" is generally lacking (except for during certain schoolwide events). Additionally, the school social scene revolves around cliques and popularity which is not always the best.
Tenafly High School has awesome teachers who care about your education and offers classes that will surely challenge you. The community and school spirit are great too. Unarguably one of the best high schools in the country.
I'm a student at Tenafly high school and I was a transfer student and my transition was very smooth.
This school is very academic. Good teacher and administrator support. A pretty competitive environment. I like that it offers many athletic opportunities.
At the end of the day it’s not really the school itself that gets you ready for life it’s the people surrounding you. I felt well surrounded and always had good connections and resources. Every school has its ups and downs but I wouldn’t want anything else.
It's a pretty upper-class school. It's expensive to live in the town because a lot of the money goes to the schools. The school is kind of the focus of the town and the education system is very valued. Very academically competitive.
I studied at Tenafly High School from 2012 through 2016. This means that I studied at Tenafly High School for 4 years.
I like THS a lot and I would say I am having a pretty positive experience here. We are up with technology and aren’t lacking in financial resources (I would know, im my class treasurer).
Tenafly High School represents a dynamic and diverse student network. High level courses are taught including numerous AP classes and Science Research. Teachers provide challenging education that prepares students for standardized tests like the SATs and ACT. The school welcomes all students, and provide an encouraging and competitive community where they excel.
This school is very relaxed but at the same time, it is very competitive. There are a lot of academic competition between the students. Teachers are fairly good, some are better than the other but most teachers are good at teaching. The school listens to concerns but not all the time and it is not the best.
Tenafly High School is a very competitive school and environment for students. It allows students to really challenge themselves and push themselves if they are reaching for their dreams or goals. Although this is a positive aspect of this high school, this could be a flaw as well. For some students, it is hard to manage their time and balance their hobbies and work.
While the academics and faculty are usualy very helpful and good for my classes. I would like to see less e days in the rotating block schedule, because it makes it easier for a student to manage their homework when they have more regular days that aren't packed with classes. Another thing is that with the new block schedule it is harder to find classes at the beginning of the year, so the school should set the student potal up with a schedule for each letter day so the student can find their class more easily. Although I like how the school also offers chromebooks many students damage them because they aren't being monitored. A chromebook that is missing keys will make it increasingly hard to write with and will slow down the students ability to type. I recommend that the school assign numbered chromebook so that we can find out the students that are doing this and discourage them from doing so.
The teachers were very good and the academics really prepared me for college. The students are very "cliche-y" and I sometimes felt very excluded because I was part of the minority of the student body which was very surprising.
Tenafly High School is an amazing institution. Throughout my four years, I've encountered passionate teachers, taken a plethora of interesting classes and electives, and been able to participate in a wide variety of clubs.
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.
I have gone to Tenafly ever since kindergarten and I am happy to say I have had a very positive experience. I have struggled with various learning issues which have made school difficult. Fortunately with the help of most people at Tenafly I have been able to grow into a confident person and an engaged student which is something neither I or many other people though was possible.
