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!

The activities available for the students to participate in are amazing. There are so many different organizations, clubs, and activities for kids to take part in for all varying interests. The school takes pride in their school pride!
I am so bummed that we aren't having prom or a graduation ceremony! I was looking forward to closing out my high school chapter with graduation at least. But I'm thankful to Tennant High School for making me the person I am today. I am thankful for all of my friends and teachers for helping me grow. They helped me get through some very hard, personal struggles as well as academic. My guidance counselor is the absolute best. My last two years at Tennant have been exceptionally changeling on a personal level. Mrs. Kudish was always there for me and helped me find coping skills that I will have now for the rest of my life. For that I'll never forget my high school years. I look forward to the future. I'm going to Nursing School to be a Pediatric Nurse. I am so excited! I'm not going to let the Covid 19 virus take anything away from my happiness to move on. I hope America can heal 🙏. God Bless America!!
