    "And yes, no one cares about anything -- nobody cares about sports or clubs. Many students can't even spell vegetable. 160 of 213 seniors are failing at least one class....Parents love having heart to heart convos with administrators as they're pulling their child out or getting them from suspension but don't do anything. They toss em away. Lunches are unspeakable. So incredibly small and cheap! Pizza is clearly the $1 pizzas from walmart. tiny cups of green fruit, some lettuce and a carrot for salad, the same rolls for burger buns and rolls..it's just despicable how bad this school is. And there's classroom fees? Senior dues are 150$!!"

    "The only good thing about this school is Mr. Griffitt, one of the history teachers at Tara. Mr. Griffitt makes learnng fun and interesting and is very caring towards his students! Mr. Griffitt is the bomb."

    "I think the public school system is suffering because all the blame is being placed on the teachers. Ruston Michael Rhorer."

    "I think this school and every school leadership needs the freedom to run it according to the type of students and not be forced to confirm the school board ideas."

    "ok i have a lot to comment. My son floyd lee goes to this school and i have been here as well. The cafeteria is very disorganized and the students in the regular classes and some students in the honors are very disruptive. The test scores are terrible and the academics are not diverse in terms of academic opportunities. The teachers are pretty great overall but the students could provide negative influences. The schools does not meet Louisiana's requirements and the school was stated as 'in need of improvement.'"
