    "Something I love bout Tara high school is the dedication that the teachers have towards the students . Something that can be improved is the school lunch and also the interaction of the students . The students rs treated like animals and middle schoolers . The students have no freedom & the administration and teachers don't allow students to learn ."

    "My experience with Tara High School is very good. I participated in many extra curricular activities during high school , which made my overall experience more exciting . The teachers are very nice , and the student body is made up of a bunch of great children with leadership skills."

    "My overall experience about THS, was and outgoing adventure. I love it and I've been going for three years now and can't wait to spend the last year at Tara. That's why wouldn't change a thing just because of one bad teacher."

    "I loved Tara High School's student body. I was part of a class where all of our peers wanted us to succeed together and we were all like family. We had some teachers that cared and would connect with us and most that didn't. Most of the teachers cared too much about discipline that they rarely taught. Our administrators were ESPECIALLY like that. If we were a few minutes late on certain days or didn't have ID's there was no class time for us. Tara was definitely treating the students like prisoners. Restrooms were locked CONSTANTLY, couldn't go to the restroom in between classes,and we would have to walk longer ways because of certain "rules". Starting the 2016-2017 school year, if sophomores scored a "fair" or lower on an EOC then they would be placed into a class called "Technical Writing" instead of English III. Everyone knows that English III is need for college. The school just treated students horribly."

    "The school socially is great but the teachers now a days can not teach. Tara High is a school that has changed a lot overtime because of my generation and how the teachers do not enforce the rules."
