Who was your favorite teacher or administrator during your time at TMHS? What subject did they teach? What made her or him special?

My favorite teacher is Kate Anderson. She is a wonderful, dedicated teacher who makes high school worth it for me.

What is something about TMHS that people might not know, but should?

TMHS has an insane amount of extracurricular activities, such as drama, gardening, music club and so much more.

What advice would you give to next year’s ninth grade students coming to TMHS?

I’d tell upcoming underclassmen that they should get involved with classes and groups in school because it will help them make friends and make important connections with teachers.

What makes TMHS special? Why?

TMHS is a special school because it’s such a small school. Limited class sizes make it easier to talk to teachers and peers about classes as well as personal issues.

Sarrah’s teachers say…

Growing emotionally, with maturity and grace, is one of the most difficult tasks any human being faces, let alone the American teenage high school student. Accomplishing this feat, Sarrah Bernier distinguishes herself in a world of indulgent personalities who never want to grow up. Sarah comes to school proudly, and often loudly, greeting her friends, peers, and teachers, with an enthusiastic hello, asking how well everyone is doing, and spreading infectious energy in her wake. Beyond praising Sarrah’s grit and determination, the most important thing the community beyond Tourtellotte’s walls should know about Sarah, is that she will be a force amongst them after she graduates.
