    "As a teacher at Tennyson for 3+ years, I'd say it is on the up & up. We have a leadership team that abides by its name, a dedicated staff that can take your students as high as they are willing, and a loving, diverse student body. The school is safe - fights are way down. There are lots of clubs, extra-curricular sports, and academic opportunities available to students. I know we're just a "3 out of 10," but we graduate "10 out of 10" students often. It would be nice if we could get some more parent involvement."

    "As a graduate of this school, I am torn between an average and an above average rating because it is not the cream of the crop preppy school. Needless to say, I am on my way to getting my Masters despite many barriers to a better education given my resources. Most teachers here are compassionate and knowledgeable--I can think of many great teachers that I've encountered over the years who I keep in good relations with. The quality of education is based on self-discipline and self-motivated learners. You get what you can squeeze out of it. There are UCLA, Stanford graduates who have attended Tennyson High and have gone on to work for tech companies, teach, and are achieving their dreams. Teachers here will stay after hours just to help that struggling student... The great loss of this education in this community are struggling Hispanic families whose teenage kids are working instead of studying. My two cents."

    "My daughter attends Tennyson and this is her first year. I will have to admit I was a little leary based on the information other people told me about the school. However, my daughter has maintained the honor roll and I have found the administration to be extremely helpful and resolved any issues that I may have had immediately from the Principal, Counselor, and Teachers. Tennyson really is a good school!!! I wish more parents would involve themselves, especially on the School Site Council Committee where changes that matter takes place."
