John Randolph Tucker is a great a school. Not only because I went there my four years of high school, but also because even my cousins who moved and started going there, said they liked it. The teachers are very supportive and they help any one who seeks help. You can do just about anything since they have a variety of sports, I was part of the girls soccer team one year and I loved it, unfortunately i couldn't do it more years because of the other classes I was going to take.
