I loved going to Topeka High. Most students are very friendly and accepting of everyone. There was an abundant amount of school spirit, great athletic teams, and caring people. When I first started I was very shy, and now I am very friendly and outgoing. I love everything about the school, especially the crazy traditions.

Topeka High School is a great school, however, it is not in the best part of town. A lot of low income household students attend this school. There are a lot of families with only 1 parent in the house.

I might go back to this school because of some of the individuals I met. It was a lot of fun some times but what makes this school unique is how diverse it is.
