Open Quote They do not offer the students many extra curricular activities(other than sports), and communication between the school and the parents is very poor, especially with regard to operation schedules, necessary equipment, etc. Tunstall High School makes no effort to stay up to date with or utilize modern technology, and that is just neglectful to the students. This school also make no effort to let the students know what they need before the new school year begins. Thus causing a mad dash to the store (after the school year has begone)for parents to get the equipment our children need to be successful. The principle of the school is NEVER a warm person, in the least, the only time I have ever seen a smile on her face is when she was yelling at a student for inappropriate attire (not my child), but it was still very unpleasant to witness. However, the reason why I gave this school a positive rating at all is because of it's few very good teachers who do seem to care for the students and do there best to work with the very little they are given.

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
