    Academically this school has a lot to offer, however be warned parents there is a group of truly bad students that are often involved or talking about doing unspeakable things as well as fighting. Make sure your children know how to pick friends and this school can be a blessing

    I like the school very much, the only thing i see that needs to improve is have teachers after school be more supportive.

    I graduated from Tavares High School in 2008 and I loved Tavares. I thought that it was a great school and the teachers were wonderful!

    I feel that this school is the best option for a child's education if you reside in Lake County. However, there are many issues with regards to how much interest is given to the child/parents concerns. They do not work well with you when it comes to helping your child move classes that they are struggling in and are not happy with. They are so dug in on the way they want things they forget about the fact that the students/parents feelings and concerns should come first. These are important years for our children and they should be a good memory not dreaded. The esembler program is an added feature this year and a plus for involved parents.

    I think they are very into school, but yet they need to do more one on one attention.

    Overall, a good public school. I would say one of the best if your child takes honors/AP courses. Not as great for the child just taking *normal* courses-the teachers in those classes just do not care as much. I have emailed one teacher five times in the past 5 wks to get two questions answered. She has written back, but argues one question, never addresses the 2nd. Administration ok-Tatro is good, strict.

    the teachers are of high quality, most know thier subjects. there are some who dont but most do. the administrators, mainly the principal, vice principal, and the disciple instructors have alot to learn. they have just proppsed a new attendace plan which will be discussed at a sac meeting in february. THS is a good school, but as far as the administrators are concerned they could improve thier performance greatly

    Tavares has a great academic program however the sports are run by who is who's son or daughter and to much politics are involved when it comes to who makes a team and who doesn't.

    I attend Tavares High School I am in the 12th grade coming up this year and I have enjoyed this school from day one. I am a cheerleader I play in the band I played soccer and basketball Im in FCA and I do track and to top that all off my grades are great. Most schools either focus on one thing or the other but Tavares High School is well rounded with great teachers and because of this school Im now apart of the National Society of High School Scholars and in the Who's Who Among American High Shcool Students, and A Allstar Cheerleader. I will be forever greatfull to Tavares High Shcool . Thanks

    My daughter is a sophmore at Tavares High School. I really think the school pays alot of attention to it's academic standing, which shows in the fact that the school has a b rating. She is involved in softball, and the discipline and parent involment is truly inspiring. I feel as though we are lucky to have her in this school, as I have seen what both Eustis and Mt. Dora have to offer, and it is quite unacceptable. My child feels happy, brings home good grades, and have never had a safety issue.

    I transferred from MDHS to THS, and loved it! The teachers were great, and there wasn't so much racial things going on.

    Tavares High School is a wonderful school because of all the teacher and parent involvement with the students. The wide variety of classes helps to expand a student's knowledge of the world around them. The classes range from Musical Theater to Forensic Science to Weightlifting. I would thoroughly recommend this school because you would be helping your child reach their personal best.

    I attend Tavares High School and I think that this is one of the greatest schools in the county. The teachers are amazing and they actually teach you something you can use. I get straight A's and I am in all the honors classes that are available. Many parents are involved with the school and the extracurricular activities.

    I think the teachers at Tavares High School have high expectations for the students and the students know the teachers care about their achievement. My son has not missed one day in 2 years! In elementary and Middle School, he missed at least a day each nine weeks. I have no clue how they are motivating him at Tavares High, but I am very happy about his attitute about school.
