Tunstall High School Reviews

All Categories
Tunstall High School is very highly regarded for its' academics. Students who take advantage of opportunities that they are given are ready for college their senior year. Some of Tunstall's administration lacks organization and skill to do their job. The guidance department has no clue what they are doing, except for Mrs. Daniel. The food is okay, they will not starve you, but it is not the best. The teachers are wonderful, they work very hard, and they definitely do not get paid enough. Most of they have not gotten a raise in fifteen years, I'm being serious. Absolutely no diversity, or culture! We have an okay variety of clubs. We have Beta, Interact, Quiz Bowl, fishing club, Art club, French and Spanish club,and DECA. Sports are okay, we are really good at baseball. Our football and softball teams are not very good. Have little to no resources, because the administration. Most parent are not involved, because most of them do not care.
Review Tunstall High School
Tunstall High School is a great school when looking at academics and college readiness. The courses that are offered are great courses, the teachers who teach the courses have a love for the subject that they teach, and if there are online courses for those that are not taught in a class room. Although, the school does not have great diversity. Tunstall High School is a majority white school, meaning sometimes there may only be one black student in a class. Even though the school does not have diversity, the academics that are offered overpower that.
The teachers are always there to help, and are always reaching out providing you with every resource you need to not only pass but pass profusely. The school provides many clubs and organizations, always throwing pep rallies keeping all students involved. Tunstall is on top of not only grades but attendance as well.
