Great and safe area! The school district is genuinely caring. There is a huge difference comparing my hometown to tempe. My sister moved to Tempe a few years ago and she was the one to recommend that I make the move to Tempe.

I thought the Tempe school district had nice, clean schools. However the education system was lacking. There is not enough challenging programs for students. They also let students fall through the crack with their education. Overall the district needs to improve on exchanging and retaining students so that they have a great future.
I enjoy coming to Tempe high school I think it is good in many areas such as academics, diversity, and they make it a fun time to be here.
