Texas Technical High School Reviews
Texas Tech High School
I agree with the above review, my daughter has failed the final exams and studied what she could. They do not give you a study guide or review sheet to go by. It is very unfair to fail the whole course because you fail the final.
I would strongly recommend against this school if your child has test anxiety or has any learning disability. Homeschooled students who don't have a 504 plan or IEP may struggle with the final exam and I don't want you to experience the same heartbreak and frustration my daughter had. She suffers from dyslexia and it is difficult to keep facts and figures organized in her head. She did very well on the class projects and quizzes (had a 94% going into the final). She spent over 100 hours on these projects and text reading. After asking for guidance from the instructor as to what to study for the final exam, she basically told her to re-read the 400 pages of text and memorize everything in it. We did the best to have her prepared (studying 12 hours for the final) only to have her receive a 60% on the test. Because you need to score over 70% on the final, she failed the class!! I have a masters in teaching and taught high school myself and was beyond disappointed that they gave her a failing grade in a class that she gave so much time and effort to!
