Tanner High School 5

My kids love Tanner! My kids are involved in extracurricular activities. My oldest child got a scholarship to attend college that included full tuition, room and board. Not too bad for a student from a little school like Tanner.

Most teachers know what it takes for kids to be successful and try to get the students to perform at that level. Every school has one teacher that needs to be gone.

Amount of homework: Just right

Students spend a lot of time at school. The homework they are given for most classes is project based for the most of the time. Students are given time to complete the assignments before they are due. One math teacher gives way too much homework. Kids shouldn't have homework every single night for any class.

This is a culturally diverse school. Students at Tanner are from all over the world. My daughter attended school with students from various countries. Helping each other understand customs and traditions as well as just communicating builds a caring and compassionate friendship.

I graduated from Tanner and had the best time of my life. Tanner has been judged for many years of things that has happen in the community. The school has nothing to do with that. There are some great teacher and some that do not need to be there and it's very diverse. The principle there is great. Mr. Owens tries his best to make everybody happy. He cares about each and everyone one of those kids at that school. Yes, Tanner has it's problems, but what school doesn't. I have two girls that attend the school they love it. Everybody supports everybody.

I am happy with the teachers at Tanner, However I do believe that there is way too much tolerence for emotional bullying and peer pressure, especially in Elementary. I also feel that over the last year parental involvement has been cut down from where it was 2 years ago.
