Tumwater High School Reviews
Tumwater High School is as average of a high school experience as one can have, presuming you're white and enjoy sports. While the teachers and classes are decent, they're nothing particularly special. If you enjoy extraciricular activities and school involvement, don't attend here. The high school brushes aside the contributions of all other student programs in favor of bringing attention to the football team. The administration is bad at staying in constant communication with students. Also, the student body is about 90% white with very little attempt to encourage diversity. However, the overall campus environment is good. The school is a comfortable size and has good security. Shout out to the incredible counseling office! While I would reccomend THS pay more attention to their extended student programs, due to the teacher's strike of summer 2018 that is unlikely to occur.
Tumwater High School is a good place to learn if you're here to do so, with supportive staff at the helm. Though the subject range available is relatively sparse, Tumwater High School provides at least a surface level look into many fields such as architecture, art, music, law, business financing, and networking. The student body at Tumwater High School holds each other to a high standard of conduct, stemming from our pride as T-Birds. Though controversy has surrounded the school in recent years, Tumwater High School pulls through as a fantastic place to learn and grow.
Tumwater High School had possible the best teachers I have ever met. They would become invested in each student, working hard to make sure no one was left behind. They celebrated and welcomed all differences. All my teachers were flexible when it came to convenient times to meet for help, and would change their explanations so it would suit the student. They all wanted us students to pay attention to what was happening in the world so we could discuss and prepare ourselves for the next big transition: life outside of high school. From the custodial staff, to the librarians, to the bus drivers I had only positive experiences with the kindness and generosity of each staff. Although Tumwater is not the most diverse town, each and every student had a place in the school. Clubs and classes were all inclusive and students came from all kinds of walks of life.
