    Overall Experience: Overall attending TCHS has been great, but there are a few minor inequities and injustices that are easily noticed after attending a place for four years. The environment that is promoted and fostered at TCHS is not always the most fair and supportive, but nothing that has a signifigant impact on learning unless it deals specifically with a student.

    Teachers: Overall the teachers are very knowledgeable, most have quite a lot of experience, and are great at their job. Occasionally you have a teacher that is apathetic and lacks in their ability or drive to teach. Most teachers arent very good at grading and posting grades quickly, but my experience at TCHS has been very fun and I have had several challenging and engaging teachers that have inspired me.

    Health & Safety: We have a guidance office for any of the students wanting to talk to their counselor about any concerns of the school. The teachers are very understanding and will stand by your side to help get you on your feet. They love to help the students just by talking with them and maybe even the parents to have a better understanding of their child.

    Extracurriculars: We have so many clubs and organizations to chose from with our school. There is even clubs that you would have never thought of that could be a club. Many students have participated for years and others just sign up to get involved with at least something while they are in school especially if they do not have a job.

    Overall Experience: My overall experience at this school would be the people and being able to bond with the teachers. I have had many laughs and also staying after school to get extra help from my teachers. The administration is actually very rough on the students even if they make good grades and play sports. The attitudes really make a difference on how the experience will be going to the high school.
