Temple City is a pretty safe environment and the students at school are pretty inclusive. The faculty and staff are spirited! The events such as football games, rallies, and school dances are well organized and exciting! There have been a lot of changes in the Temple City district recently and not everyone approves of the changes. However, the students and teachers adapt quickly to the new buildings, schedules, and people. Having been in the Temple City Unified School District for half of my life, I believe that the district tries to do what is best for the students. They try to fit the students needs and benefit the school when they can.

My experience in the TCUSD system is generally positive. They have give many opportunities to students who wish to pursue higher education in the form of many APs, for a medium sized school. Their teachers are well-paid, and informative, and are very supportive of their clubs. They prioritize safety above all else, and offer many STEM classes as well. The only place in which I believe is improvement is in the food they serve, and in administration, since they are constantly moving around. There is also a lot of construction currently taking place as well
The people at Temple City are really welcoming and warm, so it a perfect environment to make friends. The teachers are also available outside of school hours and students are able to connect with them, gaining resources and more insight about the course. We are really organized in terms of clubs and teams as well. Therefore people feel included at school, especially when they are able to pursue their interests in a space where there are people who share common hobbies.
