I have six kids. They have all had different experiences here. It depends on the kid and the effort. There are opportunities but they seem limited in comparison to large schools. The teachers and administrative staff do their best but are still closed minded as far as teenagers go. I have been both extremely extremely disappointed and happy with this school. It's a good school if you want small town atmosphere and you lean towards more strict parenting.

This school doesn't have a single book for ANY class for my 9th grader. I can't help him with homework when there's no books. This school is really subpar. I'm moving my son out of Tahlequah schools.

I'm a former student who went to Tahlequah High School. I can say that the school, as far as academics go, was far from par. I was not being challenged. To me, thats really what matters in a school. That's why you're there, right? To get an education? But no, I sat around all day.
