I am a former student of TCHS and now a college student. From my experience I can say TCHS did nothing to help me prepare for the next level. With the exception of Mrs. Armstrong's class, I never took a single note a TCHS. I was in no way prepared to succeed at the university level. I graduated some time ago and hopefully things have changed for the better. The only two teachers that ever really expressed the importance of education to me were Mrs. Armstrong and Mrs. Ruth Harvey. Perhaps if I would've had a few more classes with them things would have been different.

As a former student of TCHS I feel I was cheated out of a good high school education. While it was sufficient to make it to the next level, I was never taught to work harder. I graduated with honors and never felt challenged seeing as all my classes were all aimed simply to pass our standardized exams. Even once I took AP classes, which was the first year TCHS offered them, I learned nothing and every student in both AP classes received failing grades on our AP exams. If you want an average child, then this is the school to go with. If you want them to excel, look elsewhere.

I am sorry that the last reviewer felt that he/she received a substandard education at TCHS. It is evident from the overall outcome that something good must have come from his experience there.This is evidenced by his/her grammar and admission to graduate school. I am a graduate of TCHS who now teaches at the facility. I have two children who are recent products of the school. I could not be more pleased with the instruction and guidance provided by TCHS. While one of my children has graduated with honors from a four year university the other is currently in graduate school. Teens now are subject to many outside influences at any institution. Yet, I have found TCHS to be highly attuned to the needs of its students.

Both the website and parent rating grossly over-estimate the ability of TCHS to prepare students for higher academics or life in general. I am a former student of TCHS. I have since completed a B.S. degree and will be starting graduate studies in the fall. TCHS simply did not prepare me for the academic rigors of college life. In some cases, I had even been taught incorrect information or substandard skills by TCHS teachers. Though the academic enviroment at TCHS is poor indeed, it is far outweighed by the detrimental culture at TCHS. As Ken Blanchard might tell you, nothing is more important in an organization than its culture. The culture at TCHS is replete with drug use, low standards, and a complete lack of discipline. These facets of TCHS culture are practiced by the students and accepted as fact, encouraged, and allowed (respectively) by the teachers and admins. Send your child elsewhere!

Who cares about athletics. You go to school to learn, not for the sports. Academically, I learned enough at TCHS to get into a good college where I make good grades.

Lake Region High has administration that really cares about the students. The buildings are practically new and the school is well equipped.

Overall I think we have a pretty good school. I had a problem with not receiving a progress report on my child and this resulted to me not knowing what his grades were. As is usually the case he was missing work and needed to make up assignments he was absent for due to school sports. Although it is the student's responsibility to make sure work is complete it does not always get done. With timely progress reports concerned parents can stay on top of the grades.Grammar needs to be taught more in all schools, especially high school. The athletic programs in our school are poor. We have to rely too much on volunteer/non-instructional coaches. They have the best of intentions and are to be commended for their time and efforts, however, the just don't have the knowledge required to do good job.There is no reason as to why our kids can not have good,knowledgeable,experienced coaches.I am not sure who oversee's this issue but when coaches are hired they should be held accountable.The athletes should be questioned to see if things are satisfactory.Parents should be questioned to get their point of view.We have a lot of talented kids in our school, it is a shame we don't have superior,winning programs.Girls sports have long been overlooked.They need and deserve good uniforms.To whomever is reading this at TCHS we want the sports program turned around.
