Twin Lakes Senior High School Reviews

Twin Lakes has provided a better education for me than the high school I transferred from. My guidance counselor schedules appointments for us to meet whenever there is a good academic option for me and whenever I need to meet with her she gets back to me within the day or two. I think knowing and seeing your counselors, principals, and assistant principles outside of their office is great. Whether they give biweekly speech updates on your graduating class or supervising lunch, gives students a nice feel between the student/faculty relationship. At the school I transferred from I didn't know who my principal or guidance counselor was so I am very thankful for Twin Lakes, otherwise I probably wouldn't be on track to graduate as I am now. The school also gives great clubs and activities available to everyone attending. And if a kid doesn't have a school hobby they can make their own club! Twin Lakes is always trying to find ways to improve and provide it's best for it's students!

It was a rather demeaning place. If you aren't a "star" personality it is hard to receive any of the attention necessary it succeed which often puts students at odds against each other. This negatively affects student's mental health and performance. My standard of education is higher than some schools nearby, but not comparable to others at my university. Needs some major administration changes and an overall environmental psyche change. I would say that it needs a more "helping" environment than a "competitive" environment.
The teachers are the reason I enjoyed the school. Also because I love to learn. What was unfortunate was the priorities of the administration—appearance, sports, extinguishing any threat to our “4-star rating.” I’ll miss my teachers for providing me a wonderful education, but I will not miss the school for its lack of involvement with the students’ issues and its inability to listen to their voices.
