  • Tabb high has the biggest drug problem ive ever seen. The entire wrestleing team is on pot. Also, its too uptight on rules, and Miss Able ignores that the science department fails to teach students correctly. Zanca was better.

  • This school has a drug problem and they need to fix it now. Fire the current staff and hire some new ones. Can't win if you have lousy staff members. Fire Mrs. Abel if you have to. I don't care.

  • Tabb High School is the worst school I have ever been to. I mean really, teachers taking bribes and smoking pot after school isn't a place for teens who want to learn.

  • Tabb High School is an outstanding school and I'd recommend it to anyone with teenagers. I love the atmosphere, school spirit, and support that is available. Being in the military and having my children attend many different schools, there were many times I worried about their safety or them fitting in at school. This is not the case at Tabb...I feel comfortable and worry free with my teenage boys at this school.
