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.
Folsom High School is a wonderful place to receive your high school education, especially if you are planning on attending college. I graduated in 2017 and absolutely loved the four years that I spent there. There is a wide array of AP and honors courses offered, and every teacher places a large focus on helping their students succeed. In addition to academics, Folsom High School has an outstanding sports program. There's a variety of different sports teams available for students to join and each is competitive against neighboring schools. All of these things are great, but what really sets Folsom High School apart from other schools is their music program. I have never
seen a school that cares about the arts so much. Folsom High School was a place of learning and growth for me because the programs offered there got me excited about my education. It's a phenomenal school that genuinely cares for its students.
