I attended Cordova High School as a freshmen through senior year. High school was such a great experience for me because I went to Cordova. From the teachers, to the administration, to the students, they all made my high school experience the best. Teachers are so dedicated at Cordova, and they really do their job as a passion. They show great care to all their students and make sure they are given all the help and resources to pass. . Moreover, the students are filled with great energy in their academics, rallies, student government and in their clubs. Let me tell you that Cordova students go all out with their creativities in sports, rallies and clubs!

One thing that I would like to see change in Cordova is, that teachers prepare their senior students for next step which is college. Yes, they do an amazing job at teaching students the senior level writing requirements for high school, but they should also elaborate on making sure they are ready for college writing as well!

I had a great experience at Cordova High School! I met a lot of great lifetime friends and my girlfriend of 5 years and still going strong. Rancho Cordova is a small town and growing. As the town grows, the school grows with opportunity to be great and fulfilling to students who are looking for somewhere to fit in. Cordova High School is a very diverse school and filled with many different cultures and personalities. It introduced me to many types of nationalities and I'm very grateful for the opportunity that I had to attend Cordova high school.
As an upcoming junior, my last couple years at Cordova was great. Speaking from newer school years, teachers have improved; it's just math that's still lacking in resources and better teachers, but to be honest, there's only 2-3 bad ones. The workload's improved -- if you're not going into IB. Clubs are getting more recognition around campus and they're paying attention to their music program now. It's overall a fun, diverse school and its activities are great!
