Tomahawk High School Reviews
During my experience at Tomahawk, I’ve had very few bad experiences with teachers and other staff members. Because of the schools small size, a lot of different classes and extra curricular activities aren’t offered at the school. This ends up being a blessing in disguise though, because what’s offered ends up being underfunded, which is blatantly shown in the fine arts department and the fact that there are no year round clubs.
I can’t really be too harsh because the high school is struggling. However, the overall quality is much worse than it really should be. Administration is petty and will pick favorites, and tends to maintain status quo. Only a handful of teachers really prepared me for college. The areas I was the most prepared in were English and science. Other departments seem to have motives different from just helping kids succeed. THS also focuses too much on athletics at the expense of everything else. The administration spends a lot of time propping up students on the football and volleyball teams as students to strive to be. This is fine as long as the school does not mind being filled with druggies. Honestly, the schools biggest flaw is that it is not self aware in any regard. The school would rather just do what it had always done and make changes to maintain a new status quo, never striving for progress or wanting to improve. I can’t honestly recommend this school to anyone.
I liked how the building was common core and I could get involved with the younger children. I was able to participate in the Friend's Program, where during my study hall and resource hour, I could go down a few times a week and meet with a younger child who has a rough home life. I appreciated my government and economics teacher Mr. Baalke, who made me question why in every answer I gave. Also how he had us to verbal interviews for our grade which helps prepare us for interviews we will partake in the real world. The school district really liked to get involved with the community and make an impact in each and every one of our lives. Through this school I was able to go to Germany for a month in summer 2016 through the GAPP program and see wonderful new things. The experiences I have shared here, I will remember the rest of my life and cherish all the great laughs and memories that have been created.
