Ok, I want to set the record straight. The post from September states the exact opposite of what things are like at Tarrant High School. This school does not care if you make it it to college, as long as they get rid of you they don't care about you. Students are prevented from learning on a daily basis by people who show out in class. And people wonder why we have such a high drop-out rate.
Tarrant is amazing because all people involved in the education of these children put the students first. Students are given an opportunity to learn through differentiated instruction and strategic lessons. Each student is paired with a teacher as their mentor and is supported in this way. We have an excellent, committed and experienced faculty. The reason for this is great leadership from our faculty from the board, the superintendent and our principals. The students are committed to learning and are for the most part are responsible and respectful.
It may be a new school, there is the same problems with intimidate and bullies . I wished this school had a course to teach the bullies how to act better to others...Because a student should not feel insecure or theranten to go to school....
This is my first year at Tarrant High School it's overpopulated,there's 30 kids per teacher,dark and gloomy hallways,in the winter there's no heat hard to concentrate on studies when your arecold,leaks in the building. The dress code is ridiclous,dress code comes before academics to the teachers in this school system,the basketball program is very very unorganized,the students are out of control which makes it harder for the ones who wnt to learn,and most inmportantly you have absolute no leadership from the principals and some of the teachers!!!!!!!!!!!
I graduated in 2005. I found that A few of the teachers there cared about you and tried their best to make sure you were doing the best you could. A lot of faculty changes were made during my years at Tarrant and it seemed like the best teachers were the ones to go. I felt like the football season was more of a concern than the eduaction.
I am going to go to the high school next year and I am actually looking forward to it. I have been going to Tarrant since 6th grade and I have loved it. It was easy to make friends for me. I havent seen any racism yet and I work in the office but I have to admit the are fights almost everyday but there usually over little things. It is fun here because you get to participate in clubs like FBLA, FCCLA, Art Club, SGA, and NJHS. And the electives are computer, home ec., art, office aide, pe aide, and media center (library) aide. We also have Gifted classes and Title 1 classes for math. Well I think I have covered almost everything.
My first year at tarrant... Find it to be very warm and welcoming to the student and parents. Principal & assisstance shows care for the students grades,conduct and safety. Display great discipline skills,and encourage our students on many occassions.
