I started attending Tunkhannock High School at the start of my junior year, and I have been so happy here. They create such a happy and unique learning environment. They have so many clubs and sports so you will definitely find something you can be a part of! I am so proud to be a Tunkhannock Tiger!
Tunkhannock high school offers many different classes, sports, and clubs from which to choose. Thanks to this, you can always find your place to fit in, whether it be in band, theater, basketball, wood shop... the list goes on. Diversity is minimal but it gets better every year. The lunch needs a big improvement, but that is a nationwide issue. Overall, Tunkhannock is a great place to go, with teachers, coaches, and counselors that care and want to help you succeed.
