Coalinga High School is an outstanding High School. The environment, teachers, classes everything is just great. The school has a lot of programs that help develop experience for real world situations. Teachers and staff member are supportive and are checking up with those who need help. They make sure to go over safety rules with us and want to see each and every one of their students safe. There's a lot of athletics in our school and it's the same how the support system that all the sports in the school get. There's high school students, college students, and parents that go to the games and also support the student athletes. I really like the support teachers give and the help they also stay to give after school for students who are struggling with a subject or failed a test so they can retake them. Coalinga High School helped me get back on track and I am happy with this school and what they do, wouldn't have wanted to spend my high school years anywhere else!

Great environment! Very supportive staff, teachers, administrators, counselors, and so on. Very promoted clubs and volunteer opportunities in the community. Great sports programs! A very great traditional community to be apart of. Always up to date with daily bulletin both posted in the halls and read every morning.
I enjoy almost everything about my school. I do have problems though with transportation and the food provided because it is not always the best having to wake up early and eating the same thing every week. The teachers care for the students and there is equal opportunities when choosing which classes, clubs, and sports to participate in.
