I liked how Tri Cities was different . You could find all types of people there. You could get in contact with many new topics to study there. The downside is that the school sometimes feels kind of biased. Our school is a performing arts school, so if you aren't in the magnet program, you might end up feeling a little left out. We have sports team, which I was a part of, but they aren't as recognized either unless you're on the football or boy's basketball team. It never bothered me much; I just didn't like how certain students believed they were better than other students just because of what they were involved in. But I guess that's just the hierarchy of every high school right ?

Being in the magnet program there was a wonderful experience as an artist. I enjoyed the teachers and the whole performing arts program. However, the teachers could give the students more motivation and they should give the actual reality of college. From freshman year the diversity was kind of there then senior year I learn to appreciate the school a bit more. Tri cities has been a great experience when there was a great principal like Dr. Sims. I hear it’s gone downhill and the students are out of control no structure what’s so ever and that’s a major issue

The extracurriculars at Tri-Cities are astounding. What makes the school one of a kind is the fact that it has a performing arts magnet program. The magnet students are constantly after school and devoting extra hours of our lives at the school to show our dedication towards our magnet. Not only are there the arts, there are also a multitude of clubs, There are SGA, BETA, DECA, FBLA, FCCLA, and etc. that anybody can join if applicable. Sports such as football, softball, lacrosse, basketball, baseball, soccer, and track and field are also activities that students can get involved with at Tri-Cities.
