  • My son is in the 10th grade last year and this year he has been place in the advance class and last year he did very well the teachers were able to control the class..This year only 3 of 7 his teachers are able to do so because the student have no respect to the teachers..the three teachers who care about my son are great (Ms. Gurosky, Mr. Paulin, Oliver) and for these I'm thankful..and the best one of all is Mrs. V Mathis .....Even though these are some kind words for the teachers there is still more work to be done for the safty and edcation for all of the students..The school need to do more for the white kids so that they can feel safe and be able to graduate..because as a parent I have talk to a lot of my son friends of all say the same thing..

  • This is the worst example of a public school that there is. Students running the halls like animals, Teachers that could care less about if you graduate or not. Parents, if you love your children, do not send them to Tarrant.
