Excellent teachers and committed PTA. Find information on the new high school being built scheduled to open 9/17. http://www.tahomasd.us/pages/Tahoma_School_District_409/Buildings/New_Tahoma_High_School_Project
I'm a student at this school and I'm not impressed with some of it. Here's why. The principal at this school doesn't care about anything but sports and students who have straight A's. If your in special education, the staff will be very hard on you. They should discipline more kids for being tardy to class everyday because they are too busy talking to their friends. They get an unexcused tardy and they don't get disciplined for it. The school doesn't care about anything but sports and straight A students. This school is almost as bad as the Junior High. If you have other schools that are available for you, PLEASE take them! DO NOT go here! I hate going to this school. Safe your life and find another school.
Hands down the best school! National recognized for their academics, athletics, and clubs such as "We the People". As a student I felt as if this school prepared me to be a well rounded student and citizen. This school truly cares for every child's future. You can't go wrong with being in the Tahoma School District.
It is an awesome school. It offers a lot of AP classes, college nights, and extra help is always available. It has been rated as a top school according to Newsweek and US and World Report. The students receive top notch education and are very prepared for the "real world".
My grandmother went to Tahoma and then my father then myself and finally my daughter so we are true Tahoma Bears and proud of it ! I will treasure my experience of going to Maple Valley schools because my memories of my youth are so special and made me into a person that I am proud of and love! Thank You to all the teachers that dedicate themselves to helping mold souls into beautiful, well educated members of society!
Hands down one if not the best highschools in the state and one of the best school districts. All my kids have attended since elementary and i am grateful for every teachers passion to see my children succeed. They care deeply as much about their character building as they do about their education. Tahoma senior high was recently ranked by newsweek magazine as one of the top 5% high schools in the nation. I cannot speak highly enough about our principal and teachers at this school. There is something for every learning ability at this school and teachers will do everything to help them succeed. There are many clubs and activities kids can participate in if sports isn't their thing. Awesome leadership program...Tahoma's 'we the people' team has won state and gone to nationals many years in a row. Excellent principal!
