I loved my high school, Folsom High. Even though the school was huge, it had a small school feeling. Everyone knew each other and that could be a good or bad thing, depending on the day!

Folsom High offered so many paths to personal growth. Whether sports, theater, or school spirit, there was something for everyone. You really were only limited by your own ambition, or lack there of.

The teachers and staff did a great job getting to know the students and were always supportive. Whether it was a teacher coming in early to help me go over an assignment I didn't get or my counselor working with me to help me decide my post high school path, they cared and it showed. You never felt like it was just a job to them; more like a calling.

I feel very lucky to have gone to this high school. I am confident the memories, friendships, laughter and pride I feel will stay with me the rest of my life.

Folsom High School is a great school to go to because you learn so much with the teachers. There are so many great teachers. Also, as to when it comes to sports, everyone some way or the other gets involved. I would recommend this school only because it really keeps you connected. Classes become families. The Engineering Challenge is a great event to participate in too! News channels come and interview students. Judges from SMUD and Intel come and ask the students questions about their projects and overall it is a very successful event.
Better than a lot of other places. Strong academic community here, but there are a decent amount of sub-par teachers. This is mostly made up for by a few very good teachers in different subjects. There is a strong element of competition between the students that, while motivating, can be stressful at times. The extracurriculars are great here too with an exceptional football team, jazz band, and basketball team. The soccer team is also very good, but not on the same level of the others. Not much support for the soccer team despite having a very strong team consistently. Varsity team went 2 years undefeated, without much recognition from the school. Often too much homework assigned, and students rarely get a full night sleep, especially those that participate in sports or extracurricular activities.
