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.
