I love the teachers and staff! They truly are wonderful, and care about me as a student and human being. This school does not value students who are involved in multiple activities, and only seems to care about those involved in sports. The staff is disgustingly underpaid.

My experience at Tonganoxie High School has been outstanding because of the amazing staff. I have never felt like a teacher did not care about his or her students. Despite some students' misbehavior, teachers still treat everyone with kindness and respect. Teachers always push students to be their best. As a student, I have always felt like the staff at THS has my best interests at heart. Knowing I have this support system that believes in me has been a vital part of my academic success. Without these amazing staff members, I wouldn't have the drive for success that I do today.
Tonganoxie is a small town 4a school with a medium sized student body. There are many great teachers and people at Tonganoxie High School but there is a lack of care by the administration and town to fund the school. Along with the lack of funding the student body is very close minded, racist, sexist, and elitist. If you are someone planning to go to college I suggest not going to Tonganoxie High School because of how little the school cares about this path. As an Honor Roll student at this school I must say I am not impressed by any of my advanced courses and find them very easy. Redeeming factors of Tonganoxie are their brilliant music teachers, Mr. Gifford and Mr. Van, who truly care about what they do and how it affects us kids. In conclusion, Tonganoxie High School should have a two star review.
