this school is a really great school. i am a freshmen here and i love it. the teacher take the time to acually teach the students and not just throw the lesson plan at them. they really care about you. if you need extra help they are glad to saty after school and tutor you one on one. so all in all this school is a really great school and place to learn and grow!

Tennessee High School was one of the worst experiences of my life! I came home from school crying every day. The cliques are horrible. And teachers really tend to pick favorites. Teachers are just as bad about the cliques as the students. All that Tennessee High School tends to care about is football and basketball. They need a variety of things, such as sports, academics, the arts, ect. It seems that there are two groups at this school. Upper and the lower class. Theres no middle class. I am recenty attending Sullivan South, and couldn't ask for a better school. Tennessee High is just a horrible memory now! Parents--if your child isnt a fan of sports and cliques, don't send them there!

Tennessee High is a superb high school. Not only are their athletics terrific, academically they are the best high school in the region. Any county school would be jealous (especially East!).

Tennessee High School is an amazing school. I had several children go through there and each one left and went on to major universities such as the Univesity of Tennessee and Washington and Lee in Lexington. I didn't have one problem with this school and plan to send my young one there!

My daughter graduated from this school in 2004. She received an excellent education and most teachers were highly qualified and dedicated. The administration left something to be desired but it could have been worse. The Principal has since retired.

I have a child that goes to THS and they really enjoy it there. I understand THS is a role model to many other schools for their academic acheivements and for the athletics. THS is great and they strive to be the best in everything they do. Thankyou for helping my daughter achieve her goals.God Bless!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Tennessee used the Gateway/End-of-Course (EOC) exams to test high school students in language arts, math, science, and social studies upon completion of relevant courses. Students must pass the algebra I, English II, and biology I tests, called the Gateway exams, in order to graduate. The Gateway/EOC exams are standards-based tests that measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of Tennessee. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.
