Can I start all over,learning from my mistakes and to be able to look into the mirror to see that "most cheerfull"face???/Marty

Sid Garai

Graduated 1969 - seems like yesterday. I often tell people about the great teachers and classmates I had at Tilden. It was a fun and innocent time in our lives which gave us nice memories to look back on so many years later. Will also never forget as a senior having swim class first period in the winter and having to race to speech class next period at the opposite side of the building on the top floor. Was never late!

Paul Rosenfeld

I am a Jan. '52 grad, living in New Orleans. I'd be happy to hear from old friends. Does anyone remember Mr.Berman, a biology teacher? He really stimulated my interest in science and research.

Doris Cooper

I was a member of the Class of 1983. I was saddened to hear that Tilden as we have known it has become non existant. I entered Tilden H.S as a shy introverted girl and came out as a woman. The quality of education that i received at this fine institution of learning is what helped me to pursue my studies in Criminal Justice. I was fortunate to have been taught by some great teachers such as Dr Largmann, Mr Jackson. Ms Skolnick, Mr Leventhal and Maxine Jones, Mr Statesman, just to name a few. Tilden will forever reign in my heart and I am so proud to have been a student. Mr Everett Kerner was principal during my years at Tilden H.S and he was such a humble and kind man and I will not forget him either. THANKS !!!
