I attended a small-town school (not Tremont), and now that my own children are attending THS, I'm very pleased that THS is surpassing my expectations by comparison. Despite being a 'small town school' with limited resources, the administration is extremely progressive. I see administrators at nearly every extracurricular activity, and they are truly invested in the school. The art and music programs are very strong . My children have the option of leaving THS with numerous college credits, and the school is expanding its AP and dual-credit courses. Yes, the course offerings may seem limited, but the school has to place teachers where they are needed most. My only complaint would be that my children have found a teacher or two unapproachable, and because this school is small, my kids have no way to avoid those teachers. The majority of the teachers and staff, however, are extremely responsive and helpful.
I am a former student of Tremont Grade School, Junior High, and High School, and my brothers are both currently at THS. While the curriculum is challenging, it is extremely basic--you get your math, your science, your literature, your history, etc. The teachers there can't be generalized, because some are great and some are horrible, but that isn't the main issue. You don't learn agriculture, and Tremont is a farm town. You don't learn English, you learn literature--most of the people in my grade did very poorly the one real English and Grammar class we had, and that class is no longer offered. You don't learn much culture at this school. The number of specialized classes is hardly mentionable, and there are NO advanced or honors courses. There are also very few courses that will provide you college credit.
Tremont's students are some of the brightest I know. Not only are they very smart, the teachers care a lot about student's educations and do whatever it takes to help them if they're struggling. The sports programs are average, they don't offer a wide variety but still they manage. The music department is also highly impressive. However I suggest not sending your child here if they hadn't gone to elementary school there because they will struggle to meet the high academic requirements and not to mention the students at THS are not exactly accepting of new students.
