Why TSAS? I’m from the Tulsa area (even though I moved away for 10 years) and I had admired TSAS from afar for a long time – TSAS alums I’ve met are so well-rounded, and none of them can stop talking about how great their high school was. Once I started teaching here, I understood what all the hype was about!
Interesting Fact I enjoy puns.
