    Overall Experience: I love Tunstall. The school has great spirit and our sports activities are always well represented. We are the top in our county academically and I feel I have gotten a great education. The teachers are willing to help in any way they can. I have learned core curriculum as well as life topics from many of my teachers.

    Student Culture & Diversity: Tunstall is mostly white middle class. We have a lot of "country boys". Everyone has their own group of people to hang out with and these groups will occasionally intermingle. There is not a lot of peer pressure that I see.

    Resources & Facilities: The school was renovated about five years ago so it's in great shape. We have nice computer labs. There just aren't enough computers for the number of students we have in our school. Guidance counselors are difficult to catch up with. You basically have to make an appointment and hope they make time. Tutoring is always available. If not with your teacher, then another teacher of the same subject is around.

    Academics: I am an A student. Yes, I could be challenged more but I feel like I am well prepared for college.
