My school is very big. There are plenty of different types of classes for students to choose from, which is good depending on what you wish to do in life.

Very nice school! Excellent academic program. The teachers are very kind and helpful, the only thing that I hope to see is a better communication/staff inside the school.

I'm the parent who wrote the previous review on super-hard curriculum. My children are bright enough. Perhaps not as bright as the parent whose kids went to Ivy League. But going to Ivy League is only one measure of success. Right? I know what an ivy league education is. I don't think I am the best or more successful because of it. Tenafly high school is not doing what's needed to help their students become successful. A recent budget meeting erupted into ugliness over a much needed budget increase (siding with the school here). Not all teachers are good and the Principal has to do something about the quality of instruction and the high teacher turnover rate in exchange for increasing taxes.

Tenafly High School expects the best, maybe the parent below has children who need tutors or more academic support. My kids did great with THS, both got into Ivy, and are now going to medical school. Great School just make sure your kid is in the right place.

I'm a parent who recently moved into Tenafly. Perhaps someone will help me understand what's so good about this school. They don't seem to be participating in any of the things I know to be important like Science Fairs. Their curriculum is super hard and discourages students. It is a huge place and they don't seem to care much about their students. Some teachers are good but some are phenomenally bad. All depends on luck who you get.

Great school, upper class town, small classrooms. One of the finest educations.
