Once a school where administrators invested enough time and effort to live in the community and enroll their own kids in Touchet, it has since turned into a paycheck for the Principal and Super. There was a changing of the guard about 10 years ago and since then its been a revolving door of administrators. Although it has stabilized in the superintendent position a little bit the Principal is simply a joke. The principal has minimal classroom experience and has zero leadership as far as curriculum development. Since this principal has taken over there has been well over %50 faculty/staff turn over and whatever remains of a student handbook is now interpreted on a case by case basis. I am certainly not saying that all faculty is without fault but the Principal position has been reduced to a simple Public Relations position and there is no leadership what so ever. One reviewer addressed the bullying problem and my family experienced this too. Teachers identify the bullying and intervene, they then refer the incident to the administration... then thats where it stops. I was not even told one of my own was being bullied until the teacher told me at conferences!!! Needs changes!!!
Touchet School was an alright school however it was full of bias because being a small school. The school had good teaching ethics however they were severely lacking in the foreign language department. The staff are pleasant however when there was problems with bullying they did not seem to be very active. In all the school is alright, it is way better than WaHi but still there are better schools.
Touchet Schools are the best in Southeast Washington for making children (and their parents) feel at home in a family atmosphere. Classes and activities are personalized to the point where each student has significant opportunities to be directly involved, to experience success, and to develop confidence that translates into a positive self image. While some individuals may question whether or not (due to their size) Touchet Schools are large enough to be able to offer a comprehensive curriculum and/or well rounded programs, after having two of our children graduate from THS and experience diverse success in 'the big, bad, real world,' we are convinced that the positive attitudes and quality one-on-one experiences found at Touchet go a long ways toward enabling any motivated youngster to find success after leaving high school. We heartily endorse Touchet Schools and encourage anyone interested to 'check out' why many individuals and families just like ours feel so good about the standards, qualities and attitudes so evident at Touchet.
