Tennent was a great school for my kids. However, there is definite favoritism amongst administrators, faculty, and certain students. It is really evident on senior awards night. Some students receive 10 or more awards, while other honorable students from the school receive none. Very inequitable display of favoritism and extremely disappointing! If you can kiss up well to the administrators and staff at this school, you’ve got it made!
William Tennent High School was a great high school to attend filled with teachers who cared about you learning and growing academically as well as making sure the student stayed involved in school actives. If I could change anything about William Tennent it would be to make sure the high school prepares its students for the real world. I feel as if I was not fully prepared for college after graduating and that I had not learned much about anything involving college. It would be great if they were to offer programs talking about topics revolving around college, taxes, and insurance, everything you will need in your future.
