    "I enjoyed the enthusiasm of the teachers; but the students are rather disrespectful. Also, the curriculum is not as rigorous as other school districts. At some points I feel like I am not as prepared for college as other kids are. Our guidance department is not frequently involved so it is hard to hear about opportunities for scholarships and college visit days."

    "I really like how we take our athletics, arts, clubs, and teams very seriously. The students are passionate and want to succeed. However, the food and restrooms/hallways could use some help. Teachers are always willing to help and go the extra mile. Overall, I was pleased with my time at TJ."

    "In my experience at TJHS, I have seen much enthusiasm displayed by teachers in regards to their students and the growth they obtain in their classes. The issue I saw growing in the community was in the inequality that administration shows to the football players, as they simply allow the football players to run amuck the halls and do as they please while others face punishment just because they don't carry a WPIAL ring on their finger. I'd like to see more equilibrium in the treatment of all kids and see them all as just students with all equal opportunities and equal disciplinary actions."
