The Tyrone Area High School has a welcoming and family atmosphere. The teaching staff is always trying to better their teaching and help their students as much as needed. Having a variety of activities for students to take part in is very important to this school district. The community and students are very supportive and involved when it comes to sports. I personally had a very positive experience at Tyrone Area High School by being involved in clubs such as HOSA and National Honors Society. If anything could be improved, it would probably be the appearance of the school itself. Some classrooms and designs are outdated and could be changed.

All the teachers are very student focused. Only thing I would like to see changed is better lunch options, on top of the cafe we already have.
The teachers help students and are encouraging towards them. They are available when and if you need help and they are not afraid to take the time to explain it to us. I feel as though their quality of teaching is very good. Some of their teaching styles are different but effective. In my statistics class our teacher teaches us the lesson one day and then give us a work day the next day that way we can ask questions and get help if we need it. She is there throughout the day if we need to go ask her questions or get help. Others teachers are similar in the way that they teach. It helps us because they are there if we need their help. As for their consistency in grading, I would say that it is fairly consistent and fair. They seem to keep it fair. I enjoy having the teachers at my school.
