WOW, sadly I am not part of this culture or state,but let it be known others are watching, for me the documentary "Bullys" put this school on the map for me, and as an even deeper twist of the blade my preference is that of the opposite of my appearance and gender. To me uniformity , clarity, togetherness, and understanding are paramount!!!!!! Not just sports or academics in itself alone, but rather a true curriculum that looks at our future as a nation and not just a city or town. The world is getting smaller everyday. Good luck tuttle high school, the world is watching.

I am a student at Tuttle High School. I've been going to the school all my life and I have loved every minute of it. The teachers have been great to me, and some have been astounding. I am lucky to have had all the teacher's I've had. They're attentive and always make connections to the students from what I've seen. It's a great school. Any parent should be proud to send their children to Tuttle Schools. I know I've loved my time here, and I'll be sad to leave when I graduate. Academics are taken as seriously as the sports. But people just believe that we care only about sports because that's what ends up in the newspapers. I have seen the overall test score ratings for this school, and we are above the state average in many subjects. I love it here, and I hope future generations will as well.

If you have children who can be successful regardless of the quality of instruction, Then Tuttle Schools are for you! Several of the teachers in the middle school do not care if they "teach" successfully or not. They simply "talk" the curriculum, throw a couple examples on the chalkboard and voila! class is over. There is way too little instruction. One particular class at the eighth grade level is set up to demoralize and crush the average student. This process is defended by declaring "Well, they will be ready when they re-take the class as freshman"! This seems to be wasting 120 instructional hrs per student per school year.....I certainly wouldn't recommend this school system unless there' an outside chance your son will play in the NFL! Sports is first and foremost at Tuttle America...oh yes, I almost forgot...Sports and Animal Husbandry. They have a nice FFA program...Hmmm, wonder why?

If you are completely close minded and only care about your child becoming a high school sports hero, this is the school for you! The administration spends pretty much all of it's money on the Agriculture and Sports departments while academics (particularly anything having to do with the arts) is somewhat of an afterthought. The teachers here are mostly wonderful (except for the coaches) but are not allowed to do much of anything the would like to do because of the school's lack of academic interest and a principle who is completely clueless (imagine George W. Bush was your high school principle). I grew up in Tuttle and graduated from this school. I feel I received a mediocre education and was not allowed to pursue my interests because the school was too caught up in winning the football state championship. Congrats guys
