My child has been in this district since 1st grade, and I am completely satisfied. He is about to graduate and is going to an excellent college. I think Tahanto does a good job balancing the demands of a pressured competitive testing-dependent academic culture with the social/emotional needs of the kids.
Overall, this school has welcomed me since the 7th grade and I have enjoyed everything about it so far. The teachers and staff are amazing and teach very well. I have only positive things to say about this school. I have friends with special needs at this school and they love the special ed staff since they are caring and very helpful. The office staff are amazing and the guidance staff helps you with school stuff a lot.
Tahanto is a very good school with an outstanding special education system. All of the staff at this school is very caring and are great. The speical education staff are very helpful and kind. The classroom 248 helps high schools very well and the staff in there are very nice and caring. The special ed program is great and this school in general is great.
Everything about this school is wonderful! Couldn't ask for anything better. Great selection of classes that are taught at the college prep level to ensure each student to be ready for college level work. My student has an IEP here and the special ed classes are great. The teachers in those classes are very nice and cares about the students. My student is in class 248 and likes it and the teachers in there are nice. That includes all other special ed classes too. All special ed staff treats him well. This is a great school for Special Ed. My student is very glad to be here. My student has not run into anything negative regarding the Special Ed system or anything in general. I would recommend this school for anyone.
I am a junior at this school and I love it. This school has the best principal ever! And everyone is so caring and nice. This is my first time reviewing a school on this website and all I can say is this is a great school.
The Principal is excellent, strict but kind, cares for the students & is always available to address any concerns either the students or the parents have. There are a lot of great teachers, funny, passionate & knowledgeable. There is a very high standard at this school, which can be difficult if you are not a hard worker. I have seen absolutely no bullying in this school. All the kids get along, no matter what group you are in. The chorus is excellent, Sports programs are good & kids work as a team, sportsmanship & character is valued over ability. The only downside is there are limited classes to take & a few less sports/clubs. Ex. Latin is not offered at this school. If you start out in Algebra 2 in Freshman year, you have to take Trig, then Pre-Calc, then Calculus. They did away with only needing 3 years of math, & students don't have options here. I love the supportive nature of this school, the small town feeling & the kids/parents themselves. The kids are very good kids overall & it's because of all the parental involvement you see right from Pre-K to Graduation & a caring staff.
Yes the building and facilities are new, but that doesn't make up for mediocre teachers. If your child is on an IEP, be prepared to advocate like never before. After one year here, we're moving our child to private. Completely unimpressed.
Bad school. My kid goes to this school and is bullied by everyone at this school including faculty, staff, the teachers, and peers. Endless gossip between faculty, staff, the teachers, and peers. Teachers need to learn how to respect each student's personal space. This school needs more teachers and should have separate teachers for middle/high school. Lightly up on some of the rules and add more extracurricular activities such as clubs and sports.
