From the teachers I currently have, and teachers that I know. My World History teachers is one of the best World History teachers in the whole school. and my English long term teacher along with my history teachers keeps the class up on all of the assignments. They are also two of the best of my teachers.

The staff and students have little school spirit. I moved to Tracy from the Bay Area recently. I'm use to the students and staff making a big deal of spirit week and really having fun with it. The other schools in the area have much more enthusiasm than us. I was a freshman in the 2014-2015 school year and was excited for our spirit days but everyone lacked enthusiasm. The students and teachers often were unaware of when spirit days were and what the theme was. If the did know, we weren't informed until the day before.

The teachers are decent. I started my freshman year here about a month after everyone else. They seem to only care about getting through the day and getting a paycheck.
