Tallwood High School Reviews

4/5 Rating - Posted January 25, 2014
My child has been going to this school for a couple yrs now. This was the first year my child had some problems. The problem was taken care of within days and have not had any other problems. Over all I am pleased with the school.

I am going to be a senior after the summer. I really love this school, much better then my middle school. The teachers are awesome and everyone is friendly. The teachers can be pretty funny too. I can never imagine going to another high school.

I am a senior at Tallwood, and I love it. I am a Global Studies and World Languages Academy student, and would be going to Green Run if I wasnt in the academy. The teachers are, on the whole, wonderful. They are nice and know what they are doing. However, there are a few that arent as good, but they are rare. I am an avid athlete, participating in Cross Country, both Tracks, and Soccer, and although the sports teams arent all the best in the district, we have a lot of team spirit, and are all, espeically the Cross Country team, really close. The school is clean, and the custodians nice. I am glad I decided to go to Tallwood, and do not regret it at all.

A score of 4 is low. The comments are mixed and I don't seem to understand what really is the problem.

I'm a Junior this year and I adore Tallwood. It's very clean, and the staff is wonderful. The teachers are very lively and know how to keep students attention while teaching. We have a great drama and band program. It is a very safe environment, and I love going to school everyday.

The administration is uncooperative and unfriendly. There are too many students and the fine arts programs are very bad.

My daughter will be attending this fall. She is she has some learning challenges, and Tallwood, in cooperation with the principal and staff have already held a very inspiring event for parents of students with challenges. I'm glad I found out about it in time. I hope this will be a great upcoming year!

I was a student and a key roll in the Tallwood High School Band. The school has a wonderful music program with a great teacher.

Yeah, I'm Taylor and I am a Tallwood pupil. Tallwood is an awesome school. The teachers are so much fun and they are very humorous, but they know when to get down to work and be serious. The principal, well, i don't really know her but so far I don't favor her very much. Neither do more than half of the students. I am a freshman, but I can already tell that Tallwood is the best school possible for anyone to enroll into. Thank you.

I feel Tallwood High School is a good school overall. Most of the teachers are involved and pro-active. The only concern I have with not only Tallwood but Virginia Beach Schools is their security cameras. Talking about a waste of money! My son had his bike stolen, we can see the tape but we couldn't even tell if one of the people standing there in the tape was my son! Money needs to be spent on the kids security and get better cameras!!
