Although Cordova has a poor reputation among those who don't actually attend the school, a majority of those rumors are not true! Cordova has great teacher that genuinely care for their students and are very understanding. Furthermore, Cordova is very diverse and has students of all different backgrounds. Many sports and clubs are offered on campus. Overall, I personally have/had an awesome experience at this school and met many new great people.

Folsom High is a school unlike any other. Our campus is quite large, like one of a Junior College. We take pride in our school and are deeply committed to our academics and sports. We love our blue football field, highly intelligent teachers and wonderful peers! Being a bulldog is more than just being a student; It's being home where you belong surrounded by people you love.
Folsom Cordova Unified School District shines with its ability to bring quality teachers to its students. The district generally has the intentions and resources to provide a great education, however this education is not necessarily available to every student. Folsom Cordova is just that...Folsom and Cordova - creating two distinct bays of differing quality, diversity, opportunity - most commonly failing to serve those in Cordova to the level that is serves those in Folsom. While this gap exists primarily due to external factors such as parental involvement and socioeconomic disparity, there is still much that can be done to provide equitable education to all students in the district, not just those with the means and support system in place.
