Read what parents are saying about Tahoma Senior High School
Our experience has been mostly positive. The challenging aspects related to individual accelerated learning plans when attempting to work through guidance counselors. Positive results only occurred after getting department heads involved.

Pretty poor. Kids get in fights in the bathroom. Fire alarms going off in the bathroom because kids are vaping, taking away from what could be useful time. The new 10-10 rule not allowing kids to go to the bathroom. Kids don't go during passing time because they don't want to be marked late and have a bad attendance record which will lead to even more trouble.

Horrible. They started going through kids backpacks and phones over a rumor, multiple kids getting in huge fights some going to the hospital, and a huge drug problem in the school. Would not recommend AT ALL

High school is always perceived with bad teachers, late nights of homework, rigged social classes and terrible clubs. At Tahoma, I found by personal experience and ear that none of these are true. Teachers, whether AP or not have good teaching methods and take time to help students falling behind or need help. Most are very good in the field, minus a few exceptions.There are late nights doing homework, but mostly this is affected by the difficulty of classes you take and your schedule in extra curricular activities. The environment often feels like anyone could be excepted, and special ed kids aren't picked on by staff or student. Yes, the goal is for you to exceed and be prepared for the future, but clubs and sports are a focus as well, encouraging everyone to be in one, and with a variety of clubs and sports, there's somewherewere anyone can find friends. Yes, I know it sounds corny but that's Tahoma. Various events around the year try to get people of all caliber to know each otherand theres plently of staff and resources to help you achieve your goals. I love it here.

Excellent school. The staff work hard and the students excel in the arts, trades, and extra-curricular activities.
