    Health & Safety: After my four years at TC, I have never witnessed any acts of bullying. Personal safety is very good at TC. There are tons of security measures in place at TC. There are cameras EVERYWHERE at TC. We have 3 armed Sheriff officers on duty everyday that monitor the school and wonder around the school making sure everything is as it should. The safety measures are very high. TC has about 1600 students, and we are able to evacuate the campus during a fire drill in under 1 minute. That is great. Last year we had a real fire at the school, and because we have a fire drill every month, the students and staff knew exactly what to do. TC is within literally 30 seconds drive from the nearest police and fire department.

    Extracurriculars: The range of clubs and organizations is very broad. Ranging from business clubs like Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) to the gay-straight alliance STRIDE. Students can really find what ever club they are interested in, and if the school doesn't have a club someone is interested in, it's is very easy to create a club. Teachers at TC are extremely supportive of all the clubs. Many clubs have teacher sponsors that lead the club.

    Overall Experience: TC is the best school in my county, and one of the best in this side of my state. The education is very high quality. The parent involvement is the best it can get. Parents not only support their own child, but every child. They are huge supporters of all the athletic events. TC would not be the same without the parent support.

    Teachers: The teachers really care about their students and how they are doing in not just their class, but every class that the student has. All the teachers are very friendly and approachable. Every teacher has attended a well known college or university, and most of the are board certified, and the ones that are not are working on becoming certified. The lessons are always engaging and fun. There's never a dull moment at TCR.

    Health & Safety: Everyone is very safe during the school days the only unlocked doors are the front doors and visitors can not go anywhere without a visitor pass.
