I have been a student in the Folsom Cordova Unified School district for six years now and I can say that for the most part, the teachers are considerate towards their students and they know what they are doing. I've rarely ever gotten an exceptionally terrible teacher assigned to me and when I did, the district took initiative and fired/denoted them. Though not all of my peers are mature and dedicated students, I can say that the ambiance and the community of the school as a whole is very welcoming and inclusive to everyone. Social cliques and bullying isn't something I ever really witness, which is great. If I were to complain about anything, it would be the food. School lunches aren't known to be delicious and FCUSD is no exception, but it's edible and there's usually a variety. They aren't very vegetarian or celiac friendly, however. Overall, I'd say it's a good school.

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.
Very great schools and amazing teachers! All very helpful and accommodate the students needs. The schools in these district is very academic and allows the opportunity for success for all students.
