Tombstone is a great place to go if you want small classes and good learning. There are many extracurricular classes you can take that also provide college credits or even help put you into the workforce right after you graduate. The teachers are there to help you get through their class as long as you are willing to put in the effort. There are a multitude of sports to suit someone's taste from running cross country to tennis and even shooting air rifle with the JROTC program. The food can be lacking sometimes, but the cafeteria staff has been working on it.There is a culinary kitchen, a woodshop, a greenhouse, JROTC building with a built in shooting range, and a weight lifting room. In all honesty, Tombstone is a great place to go if you put in the work to be great.

I transferred to Tombstone my junior year of high school. My first few weeks were hell. The kids had all grown up with each other and formed groups and weren’t welcoming or willing to let a new person in. The curriculum was also a huge let down. I went to a high school that offered vigorous honor classes and had high expectations and then I moved to Arizona and found out that I technically already had enough credits to graduate. The only reason my family chose this school over Buena was because of the CTE courses offered. I took the teacher courses and that was honestly the only bright spot in my time spent here. Mrs. Clamor was the instructor and was amazing. I also enjoyed Honors English with Mrs. Clamon. She was a wonderful educator who pushed us to do our very best and challenged us daily, while still being invested in our lives and well-being. The rest of the staff was a joke.
Tombstone High School students behave as though we are a family. We are welcoming to all of our foreign exchange students and we treat our classmates with respect. The faculty is caring and understanding, all teachers are open-minded and welcoming.
