Tinora High School is a small, yet powerful high school. I liked the small class sizes; they allowed more one-on-one teacher to student learning, which increased my comprehension of subjects. My teachers were always willing to offer help if a student was not fully understanding the topic. They would even give up their own time - staying after school, arriving to school early, taking time out of their free period - to make sure that their students were thriving. The entire high school has a positive atmosphere. There are many sports and various clubs that all students are encouraged to participate in. The staff as well as the students try their best to make sure that everyone is included and well-treated.

Overall, My experience at Tinora has been great! I have made a lot of friends and interacted with people I never thought I would. The teachers are friendly and are willing to help you at any time.
The school should be a more diverse and inclusive environment for everyone to fit in and feel good while going through a tough part of their lives. Students already go through a lot of personal changes and self discovery and this school was a very toxic environment that did not help. This school needs better education, administration, music and arts, etc.
