My daughter is now a senior at TUHS and has had the most wonderful 4 year experience I could possibly have hoped for. She has received excellent academic instruction as well as artistic growth through her musical thaeatre department. As we are now going through the college application process for her pursuit of a BFA in acting at the finest universities and conservatories for that field, she is fully prepared and I have every confidence she will succeed in being acccepted to a school that will prepare her for a bright future in the career of her choice. All of this is due to her dedication and that of TUHS in preparing her for the next leg in her educational journey.
TUHS is an awesome school. My daughter is a freshman Musical Theater major. Triple Threat, VOICE, DANCE and ACTING. She comes home excited everyday. The school also had Broadway actors come and teach the kids. My daugher is taking a tap dance class and private voice class from respectible Broadway Actors aside from her Voice, Dance and Acting class in school. The academic teachers are amazing and when my daughter needs any help they are quick to assist her with tutoring after school. I am so happy I chose this HS for my dauther.
My daughter just got accepted to this school, and as of mid August we have not yet received any orientation information. So I contacted the Parent coordinator who rudely informed me that it was alright and that my daughter would be able to keep up ...then she hung up the phone. I am besides myself! Can't imagine that this is a TU representative. Looks like TU will be a very short lived experience. they were number one on our list...so the adage what you "read about, hear and see" does not always apply. It's what you experience that matters.
This school is a great school , they give a great amount of experience in the arts working with proffesional teachers from the broadway, dance, vocal, drama, and instrumental world. Academically this school offers ap classes , advance regents diploma , and college credits With no hesitation .
This is a wonderful school and we are very pleased to have chosen it and for my daughter, now a sophomore, to have been accepted here. The academics are challenging but not overwhelming and I feel my daughter is being well prepared for college. She loves her performing arts teachers and is getting an extremely valuable arts education. I could not be happier!
TUHS continues to be a wonderful and fulfilling experience for our daughter who is now a sophomore. The teachers are superb. The administration incredibly committed to the academic and artistic success of the students. The students are not only intellectually alert and artistically creative, they also project a rare and welcoming sense of inclusion within the student body at large. We feel incredibly fortunate to be a part of it all.
T.U is an amazing school where everybody knows each other and the teachers do their best job to educate their students. The only downside of T.U is that you have to walk up A LOT of stairs to even get to the main floor of the school OR you can take the overcrowded elevator that's operated by a rude elevator man. Also, the instrumental program could be better, if you plan on auditioning for instrumental music, your freshman year might be dissapointing do to lack of seriousness in the concert band. On the other hand, academics are AMAZING ! The teacher integrate the arts into their lessons, offer tutoring, and are always available to talk out outside issues with you. The school also has amazing after school programs such as the Step Team and Hip Hop team. There is also a Talent Show held every march which is where al students showcase there talents and even get to perform out of their majors required they get accepted into the show. There are tons of performances and school functions. Life at T.U is a wonderful experience for me and always exciting!
ugh...this school needs some serious help. The inside of it is so dull and dark, and because the building that its in shares about 4 other schools, you have to walk 6-7 flights of stairs to get to the actual school...or just take the overcrowded elevator. It's true that everyone knows everyone, but half the people pretend you don't exist! Most teachers are O.K. but some can get on your nerves, and some may use profanity in class. There are ZERO programs at the school, unless u want to join crochet or the school newspaper. There's a talent show in march ever year, which is pretty competitive to get into considering there is an audition&callback, and this year most of the students that got in are vocal or musical theatre majors and are gonna sing! so unfair..Most major classes teach well, but if you are a pianist do not go here. u don't learn much unless u want to count music theory class. There is no free period, and lunch is usually overcrowded and shared by an elementary school. Missing one day of school is like missing a week, and students usually have to do everything for themselves. The staff is nice, but the school needs more. Overall, I feel the school could do better..
