Oh yeah, it's a free education. Good value. People forget about this fact. Send your kids to a private school or move to San Marino if you can afford it. My advice is to save your money for college, graduate school and Phd. Here is what it might cost you at a private school for one child for 13 years... K-5($140,220) + 6th-8th grade ($82,410) + 9-12($124,920) = $347,550(per child) x 2 = $695,100 which is the price of a 3 br. 2 ba house in Temple City.

An adequate school in terms of everything listed under qualites of a great school according to that speech bubble coming out of this textbox. First year fresh meat here, and the school is so far... satisfactory. Won't say it's mind-blowingly outstanding, but it is pretty good. The academic performance here seems to be good enough, and the students here are pretty smart. However, traces of apathy can be detected among the students. At least that is what this student is seeing. Like all schools, there are good teachers and not so good teachers, but a general amount of them are pretty dedicated even if not completely... involved. With the parents. No, there doesn't seem to be much communication between teachers and parents. What stands out the most to this student is the lack of bullying and cliques here. Not saying that there isn't any at all, but it is not as evident as other schools and schools you might see on TV. Then again, this is only one freshman's opinion based off what she has seen so far, so do with this what you will. Overall, this is a good school, and this student wouldn't prefer another one.

I love TCHS. I had such great memories there and the teachers are awesome.


Posted January 29, 2009

D- learning handicaped classes. no focus on getting the child prepared for the regular class room inviroment. no home work, no contact to the parents to show their child is improving and what can be done at home to make better improvement in the learning enviroment. no child left behind(ha)this method will insure the child will have a hard time making it to a junior college, let alone a 4year university.

TCHS from my experiance has been a really good school. All the teachers I've had are all really nice people who have helped me when I needed it. The deans are helpful. There arent many conflict between students that have gotten that bad. In my opinion its a good school.

There are some good teachers, but many not good ones. Some of the not good teachers may have taught there for many years. Bad attitutude, bias, and not teaching much. There are not enough AP or Honors classes compared to schools from surrounding districts, for example, there is no AP Biology. Students usually get help from after school programs. Needs improvement in teachers' quality and facilities.

This school is a fairly good school compared to many around the Los Angeles area. Unfortunately, compared to the rest of the nation, TCHS still lags far behind. When you compare this school to those in the New England states, you would see a considerable difference in resources, facilities, class sizes, pupil spending, technology, and student-teacher ratios. To truly understand what I'm writing, you would need to visit a few high schools in the Midwest and Northeastern regions of the US. Furthermore, the academic curriculum offered at this school is exceptionally weak, especially in the areas of social sciences and business/technology education, highlighted by a lack of electives. If you wish for your child to have the best possible education anywhere, I would seriously advise moving to a different state.

an outstanding school that can be challenging academically for those who choose toa pply themselves. there are many ap and honors classes available and the atmosphere is very competetive as far as high test scores are concerned. our teachers are very dedicateded to students spending extra time to help academically but care on a personal level as well. Each one is dedicated to the success of each student. we have an amazing arts program including band orchestra and choir, as well as visual arts. we produce a musical every year renown for its professionalism. our sports teams work very hard and we have very supportive coaches who dedicate 100 percent. there are many wyas to become involveed with this school and community through clubs adn extracuricular activities. our staff is supportive and always finds ways to overcome any obstacles. we are blesed with a safe and friendly school. go Rams!

One of the most challenging high schools, academically and athletic competitive. Great calculus teacher and physics teacher. Strong in its math and sciences. This school strives for excellence and teachers are always there to help students in need. Some teachers stay after school to help review for the AP's. Meeting the requirements of NCLB makes it a great school to go to. Though the city and school may be small, it is one of the greatest high schools there ever is.

Considering this is a public school, the teachers are amazingly dedicated to their students. A wide variety of extra-curriculars, AP and Honors classes are offered as well.

This is a a high quality h.s. recently rated an 802 on Calif API test. This is a school where they actually teach and teach well. This is a school of veteran teachers (very few ever leave except retire) and is now a destination h.s. in the San Gabriel Valley. It is also very balanced: it has excellent academic programs (many, many AP classes) yet still has a dynamic music program, band, clubs, ASB and many athletics (from girls water polo to boys basketball and girls and boys soccer). We moved here for the schools: we wanted to send our kids to this district and now that they are in h.s. we are very happy about the decision.

My nieces and nephew attend TC. They have been very happy with TC. The accademics are challenging for a public school. They are current with their technology and tools such as computers. The sports are very competitive and alot of parent involvementin that area and in the school as a whole. My sister has always been very involved in the school, from PTA to waterpolo chair. They have a good music program. The marching band went to the Rose Parade last year. Their baseball and softball program is very well known in the area. I do believe that they continue to keep high scores for all the state testing. The school is in a very nice location and has a great football field. Over all the school is one of the best in this area. It can compete with the best. Their is a good mix of all cultures.

One Graduate from it, another just freshman, one next year too. Can't ask for much more, maybe more encouragement and impulse for students to graduate to major schools.

California distinguished school. However, the school lacks a strong extracurricular program. Strong honors and ap classes.

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.
