    "During my year at Tucson High I went through many new experiences. As everyone says this school has many opportunities but you have to reach for them. In high school your expected to do so, I personally did not like the environment, or most anything about it, at all. I made few friends & struggled through the easiest classes because of stress both at home & at school BECAUSE of school. There is some diversity but the ethnic group's are very unbalanced. The teachers you get could be either great or terrible and often both staff and students have terrible attitudes & teaching skills. You either be willing to try to work with the school (which I did at first, & now I'm trying to switch out) or simply go with the flow, meet new people and make new friends. As for the education MANY students don't even try to do their work, often did not care about their education & rules are not enforced. Drugs are done in the open, harsh language surrounds you & fights are not uncommon. I personally did not like this school at all but it really depends on what you do, what you make of it, and how you act."

    "As with any school, Tucson high has its occasional dud of a teacher, and it has the same drama, drugs, etc problems that anywhere would if you get a bunch of high school kids together. But it also has some really amazing people in its faculty and really outstanding programs. My four years there was exceptional; as a magnet school for arts, science, and technology, it has something for everybody. I had four great years filled with photography, drama, art, even weaving. Every year Tucson high sweeps the state photo competition and usually goes on to nationals. Others went on to compete at the international level for the science fair through the Research Methods course that lets you research anything you want and give you the option of pairing with a UA scientist as a mentor. I'm so glad I had the good fortune to attend."

    "As a freshman at Tucson Magnet High School I believe that my experience thus far has been debatable. Although I have met some remarkable teachers and students sometimes I just don't enjoy going here. A major part of my classmates really don't care about there education, and sometimes I feel that I am surrounded by a bunch of idiots. The education is good, the extra curricular activities are amazing but the student body is lacking."

    "The school is the best school my children have gone to. I have 5 children and my last two school age kids are at Tucson High. It is by far the best school with the most caring teachers and principals, the most fine arts programs and sports and many other extracuricular activities. They are also very careful with the safety of the students. I am very glad my kids go here."
