This school is HORRIBLE. I am a Junior at Temescal Canyon. For my freshman, and half of sophomore year I was a student at a high school in Temecula. I absolutely loved it. I then moved, and began attending Temescal. I had high hopes, but then realized this school is terrible. The staff at the school, and staff in the district office are absolutely rude. They are so vague with the information they give you, and are very unoragized. Ive noticed all the students at Temescal get away with a LOT. Examples would be little to no homework, and practically just given a grade, its never earned. The teachers definitely do not teach as much, or as well as the teachers in Temecula. The counselors do little to help, and never take anything seriously and are absolutely rude. Not to mention, many of the students are rude and stuck up, probably the result of getting away with anything and everything at this school. I do NOT recommend anyone to attend, or even work at Temescal Canyon High School.

My school is Temescal Canyon High school, the school is great and trying to make students improve by many ways like AVID is a great program/class that teaches students to know more about college's and how important it is. AVID helps to keep your grades up,binder check helps to be organize and AVID helps you study for the SAT and ACT test to get a perfect score.

The worst un careing awful teachers . Especially in the AP classes. Those AP teachers should be ashamed. Awful counselor. My kid got called to office for her first bad grade in her life in a AP class because of a awful AP teacher and was questioned as to rather her parents were gun owners. Yea , and then children's ser vices were called the kid kid thought we may be. She was not sure.

TCHS is by far the worst school I've ever attended. It is filled with rude kids, those who think are extremely "cool", don't plan on going to college, and are overall not driven. They live in Canyon Hills so they believe theyre "rich". When honestly they're kidding themselves because Lake Elsinore and its surrounding areas are incredibly cheap. An appartment in LA is more than what a house is for rent in Canyon Hills The school is socially awkward and very uptight. It's really sad. Most of these kids will still be living with their parents and wont want to move out. This school is not for those who want to achieve greatness and get accepted into a college. The staff is rude, teachers are nice but not great, they dont push you academically they just want to be your friend. And above all the kids here are terrible. Never in my life have i seen such a group. Refrain from attending Temescal Canyon High School at all costs.

My daughter was in the first graduatin class of Lakeside, it was a horrible experience. My two younger were transferred to Temescal and we are much happier. The staff are much more helpful, not demeaning to kids and in my opinion truly care about the kids. The staff at Lakeside seem to hate their jobs and take it out on the kids. Temescal's great.

I graduated from TCHS in 2006 and I would loved every moment at that school. The teachers are excellent, great Ap program, sports are good, lots of extracurricular activities, etc. I would not say it is the perfect school nor do I understand what that is but I do know i received a solid education there. Doc Harris, Cari Strange, Christina Lofquist, the Williams, are some of the best teachers i have ever had. I am a student at UCLA and after hearing a lot about other districts, I realize how fortunate I am to receive a diploma from Temescal. TCHS is a great school especially when you take advantage of all there is to offer.

It's like crossing the border. The principal is a really good guy, and thats about the only good thing about school. I cant wait to graduate!!!! Don't send your kids here, they will hate it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Principal Garnett is doing the best he can. The district budget cuts are getting outrageous!!! i would not reccomend this school.

We sent seven of our kids here and all participated in sports at some level be it soccer, football, cross country, track or golf and all graduated. Every one of them enjoyed the experience, and every one of them got a fair portion in return for the amount of effort they individually put forth. As for parent participation, I don't know of any teacher, coach or administrator who wouldn't be more effective with some support. We've never visited 'the perfect campus,' but we're proud of our association with Temescal Canyon.

I am a Senior this year, and must say, after three years completed already, I can't wait to get the heck out of here. The new principal is a pretty cool guy who doesn't afraid of anything, and the Senior Class councilor is a helpful person. However, the student body is less than great. In fact, they're the entire reason I hate going here. Freshmen are antagonized by teachers and upperclassmen alike. Seniors are all arrogant fools who are given glorifying occasions like the 'Senior Walk-in', a heretical display of a mindset that Seniors are, for some reason, above the rest of the students and that 'Freshman Suck', a common chant at all pep-rallies. Such actions are not to be condoned, especially in public school. Heresy.

My son is a senior this year and is involved in Track/Football. The new football coach has been a 'Great Addition' with fresh ideas. The most impressive of his new ideas is that he is very fair and as a result many more students are joining the football team. The new Principal is 'Awesome' another great addition. I wish this wasn't my sons last year. He is going to have many 'Great' memories.

There are good and bad teachers! You just have to do your homework on which teachers everyone recommends. Athletic programs are amazing, had fun when I went there and the English courses I took at TCHS have helped me with major advantages.

I am a teacher at this school. I see incredible teachers alongside teacher's who shouldn't be teaching, but that is happening everywhere, as it is really hard to remove a teacher who is meeting the minimum requirements. I agree that we offer a top notch program for students who are doing well in school. Last year one of our students was accepted to both Harvard and Stanford. I also agree that we need to do better in many areas. Our new principal is making good changes including a late-bus twice a week to allow more after school tutoring. However, his hands have been tied on many issues by the district.

This school is great and excels in both academic and athletic areas. The campus is kept clean and the teachers are friendly.

This school year has been a big change from the past. It's my senior year now and I have seen a big difference between last year and this year. Why is that? The reason is, we have a new administration. Our Principle is actively involve with school activities and always promoting school unity. I'm part of student leadership(ASB) and I notice these changes. School pride and student involvment is the number one change. The teachers are great! If you want to channlege your students, then take Honors or AP classes because I have them and its excellennt.

I have two students at this high school. The one who excels is very happy with his teachers.He rarely even has homework. Is he being challenged? The one who struggles gets very little intervention unless I initiate it. I feel disenfranchised to say the least.

I have had two children attend this school, both at opposite ends of the academic spectrum. Temescal's academic programs are good enough although we felt there were too few offered. It has had an excellent Band program. It has AP classes but not nearly as many as some other schools. My kids have had a few very good teachers and a few who should'nt even be in the profession. The school was very helpful toward my high grade getting child, but not helpful at all for my low grade getter. They need an after school tutoring program for those falling through the cracks.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to test high school students' skills in English language arts and mathematics. The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.

The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
