  • I attended TLHS 5 years ago. It was a great learning experience and the teachers were always around to help guide me and set me straight. After deciding on a school for my duaghter, I have chosen TLHS. Parents need to stop complaining and get more involved in their child's life. Stop expecting the teachers to do your job as a parent. It's a sfae school with dedicated educators.

  • My daughter recently had the flu. I took her to the doctor at the first sign of illness. The doctor recognized it as the flu and told me to keep her out of school for at least the next two days and to call him if she wasn't better by then. She was still vomitting on the second day so i took her back and Dr.Patel gave me a note to give to the school when she felt alright. She returned after 4 days out-I called her in each of the days, got her school work from teachers, sent her back with a note from me and from the doctor-yet she just recieved a paper saying that she lost her credits and must fill out an appeal and see if she can get them back. My daughter-straight A's and B's-might not be receiving any credit for her hard work-because she became ill. Twin Lakes is ridiculous and inconsiderate. There is no reason for this.

  • Twin Lakes juniors have suffered an unbelievable amount of tragedy - starting when they were sophomores, with Richard Ray's death, and continuing on now, after Taylor Maffett's death. I think that the school is unaware of how this is wearing the students down. My daughter can barely function throughout the day-for Taylor was one of her closest friends. As a mother I try to talk to her, although my words don't seem to do anything. Of course nothing can be done to change what has happened, but perhaps a convocation or a memorial service for the students the class of 2010 has lost is in order.

  • Twin Lakes School Corporation on a whole is an excellent school. This is not to say that some improvements cannot be made, but most teachers go above and beyond to help our children learn and they really do care. I had a learning disabled child in the school program and as a parent, you have to ask questions and be involved in your child's education and not depend solely on the school to do all the work. Our kids are only with the teachers less than 1/3 of the amount of time they are with the parents once they are school age. That means, as a parent, we are as much a teacher to our children if not more than the assigned teacher at the school. I get so tired of hearing parents complain about this teacher doesn't do this or that. If you ask for help for your child or if the child himself will ask for help, I have found that the teachers and administration at Twin Lakes bend over backwards to try and help. I've been there so I know from personal experience. Good Job Twin Lakes.

  • My daughter attends Twin Lakes High School. She doesn't tell me a lot about her day when she comes home, but she has said that she hates school many times. She gets A's B's but it seems like the social atmosphere is starting to take its toll on her. As a single father I don't really know how to comfort a teenage girl. She cries many nights and when i have asked her she says people call her ugly and treat her like an outsider. Maybe it is just me but i think she is the most beautiful girl i've ever seen. I wish i could go to school with her one day just to see what she goes through. I hate seeing her cry, and i hate Twin Lakes for not dealing with the bullies.

  • it is too easy to complain when something doesn't go your way. Twin Lakes School Corp is a quality school with devoted educators. Sure things don't always please all, that's life. The staff at Twin Lakes in my experience are truely devoted to providing each student with a quality learning opportunity in a safe enviornment.

  • Teachers are paid to teach, and i think most teachers here don't deserve a paycheck. In my opinion, my Dad and my brother should be getting a check from the school because they are the ones teaching me. Teachers at this school choose favorites, can't fill the 88 minutes with useful material, and don't deserve the credit they get. Not all teachers fall under this category, some actually do their jobs. In my honors class, which takes a lot of hard work to get into, our teacher has filled many class periods with useless movies. Somebody asked the teacher why we were watching one of the movies. The student asked if we were going to be doing a project or something over it and the teacher replied that we wouldn't be studying the movie, or anything related to the movie. The teacher liked the movie so we watched it. Our honors class is going to receive a harsh reality slap when we move on to our next year honors class. This is unacceptable and I'm sick of not learning. I speak for many other students when i say this-"TEACHERS ARE PAID TO TEACH AND I EXPECT THEM TO DO THEIR JOBS!"

  • Twin Lakes High School has not fulfilled its duties (in my opinion) to the students. That student/teacher ratio is unacceptable. Maybe thats why so many students have low grades (they don't get enough one-on-one time). The administration needs to stop looking for things to punish students for and realize that their job isn't to make school hell. Their job is to give students a good environment to learn in. With the way things are being done in the school there's no wonder why so many people have dropped out or transfered. Maybe the Super. needs to re-evaluate his decisions in the new administration.
