I think that when my daughter was there it was a good school. They have some good teachers there that really care about the kids, but they keep changing principals and the one they have now really needs to go. Its not so much that the school is bad but Hanilton County School Dist. is the pits.

Tyner is a Horrible school! We had three years at that school. Students have control of that school. There are a few good teachers. But the bad outweigh the good. It was the worst school years of my childs life! That is one school that really needs to be closed!

School does not work well with children that may be having difficulty with medical issues. Does not try to help in finding solutions for kids having dificulties, responsibilities in teaching falls on parents.
