William Tennent goes out of its way to ensure that there is a class, club, or organization/opportunity for every and anything you could be interested in. A variety of Honors Societies, robotics clubs, GSA, drama club, sports, fashion classes, athletics, APs, honors courses, culinary classes. Tennent does its best to include everyone who wishes to be included. A vast majority of the staff are kind and genuinely care about their students. There are office hours every Tuesday and Thursday, and a good many administrators stay after all of the other days of the week too. There are some teachers who are only there to receive a check, and the math department is lacking in truly gifted teachers. The biology curriculum is infamous for being extremely difficult for the freshmen taking it. All in all, the school provides whatever easy or challenging courses you could wish for.

William Tennent High School changed me in ways that helped me become better. I came from a school district that did not help students and also turned them into rude, antisocial people with behavior problems. When i came to centennial school distract and began William Tennent High school, my level to maturity rose, i improved as a person, and i made many many friends. Tennent provided all the courses needed and everything needed to prepare me for college and just overall was the best. I would not change a single thing.
Despite the obvious unpleasantness that is a given of high school, this is a really good school. The teachers genuinely care about their jobs and their students. There are tons of extracurriculars and after school activities; they are diverse and cover art, athletics, drama, and so on. The kids are, for the most part, very pleasant and helpful. Bullying doesn't happen often. The school itself is always clean and was renovated just a few years ago. It is a really good school.
