Tenino High School Reviews
Tenino High School is an average but small school. The small size creates a sense of community with everyone and the staff is always helpful. The academics are not amazing but certain opportunities like AP classes and Running Start are offered. Something that would improve the school is more of a focus on higher academic achievement. The students do not feel that motivated, but that seems to be common in a high school setting. Personally, I did not experience any discrimination or bullying, and I very rarely see it there. There are the classic cliches, but they are probably more accepting than a lot of other schools. Overall, it's on the higher end of average. The staff and student life is great but not so much the academics.
What I like about Tenino is the small knit community. Between teachers and student relationships, and students with other student relationships, we all build close relationships having such a small school. Some negative aspects of the school is we don't always get the best facilities, there are a lot of things in our school that could be updated, some classrooms don't have enough desks and other classrooms have had leaky roofs. Another negative aspect is throughout changing administration our school hasn't always been the best at college readiness or help applying and learning about colleges.
Tenino High School is situated in the small rural town of Tenino, known for it's open prairies, farmland and stone quarries. The setting is quiet, as is the high school. Though not overly diverse in population it is a school that practices responsibility, achievement, empathy and community. It is a safe school, free of violence and bullying for the most part. One can focus on education, sports, music whatever one desires without external distractions. I feel Tenino High School has offered everything it possibly can within the restraints of funding and general politics associated with education.
