    Overall Experience: Tri - Cities have an excellent Magnet Program. Which is one of the reasons why we chose this school.

    Overall Experience: I wouldn't choose this school again if I had to go because it wasn't what I was expecting. The students weren't the type of crowd I'm into or it has no diversity at all. I would choose this school again for the magnet program.

    Overall Experience: I love TCHS, there are just a few things that aggrivate me for example our guidance councilors do not help us to prepare for college whatsoever. Also, my school is very unorganized. BUT i love the exposure we get and of the opportunities we recieve, our magnet faculty is amazing when it comes to making sure we get to experience different things and go places. I love our magnet program and most of the magnet directors. I can honestly say our magnet coordinators do push us in a good way to make sure we are the best we can be and i love that.

    Overall Experience: My overall experience at Tri Cities is ok or average. This school has an excellent visual performing arts magnet program that exceeds in all areas ( band, dance, drama/theatre, orchestra, art, chorus). It also has alot of organiztions that students can actively be involved in. However, the students performance on tests overall and disciplinary issues are two major problems with this high school
