These are people who try to assist you whenever you're struggling with anything. That's why I'll never forget 5th grade....that's was my most ...  Read more

Tonti School has seen its best days ever. The principal is retiring after 16 years in that post. Four different Local School Councils renewed her contract.

Principal is very cold, rude, and unfriendly towards her teachers. There is no open communication between her and her staff. Assistant principals, on the other hand, are great!

Don't go to this school. I had a bad experience there. There is very little diversity. The gifted students are not awarded enough. There are not enough after school programs. Luckily I don't go there anymore. The only good thing about this school are the computers.
