Tewksbury Memorial High School Reviews

Both the tangible and intangible characteristics of TMHS make for a great school. Although the effort and capability of its teachers could use some improvement, the school makes up for this weakness with its numerous other strengths. Academics may be taken as CP, Honors, and for some of them, AP courses, leaving every student room for improvement. Athletes are passionate for both their sports and their school spirit, and those who do not play sports may participate in numerous clubs ranging from Best Buddies to robotics. Thus, the diversity of people is great enough as to where everyone can truly be their own person. TMHS has a full-time, armed policeman on campus, yet the school is large and someone can only be in one place at a time. Overall, the school consists of hard-working people who strive for solutions to issues, along with improvement rather than maintenance. The result of this attitude is a school with an exceptional balance between all important aspects of a high school.

Excellent high school! The teachers do a fantastic job preparing students for college. The courses are rigorous. The teachers have high expectations for their students and support them so they will succeed. The activities and sports programs are also terrific! Leadership skills and teamwork are important to all.
There are many pros at Tewksbury, like the Guidance Department and teachers. The Guidance Department has been very helpful with their open door policy. No matter the time, there is always space for you to talk. The English teachers here are insanely intelligent and push you to excel in reading and writing. I would not have been able to finish my college essay without their help. Another pro is the size of the school. It is not to big nor too small and it's the perfect size when about everyone somewhat knows everyone. The only downsides about the school are the Math teachers and the culture. Overall, the school could be more supportive of sports instead of lacking on fan sections. Also, the Math teachers do not really teach, and it is more like they are spitting knowledge but not applying it for you. It comes to a point where you must teach for yourself because even when you ask for help, it does not do you much justice.
