Rancho Cotate High School has a nice campus for the students to hang out on. There are lots of restaurants that are close so you could leave and be back in time for the next classes to begin. The school offers some well taught class like ceramics, woodshop, and mechanics. The science, English and math departments are taught by some wonderful teachers. They recently build a new music and stage with a lot of different audio systems and lighting for shows that student's perform. The rally's are really fun to attend one thing that bothers a lot of students is that they can't record anything during the rally's because our phones don't work inside that one building. It is really frustrating especially when the students ate performing something worth sharing on social media. All in all it is a great school to attend.

Rancho Cotate has recently gotten a new building addition. The T.A.G. building was a huge step for the schools art department. It includes a brand new band room, theatre, gym, and classrooms. The new building has also brought new publicity and funding towards the school. When I arrived at Rancho I felt very welcomed. There are many activities for incoming students to get involved in , as to really feel like a part of the school. A huge event Rancho hosts every year is Unity Week, an entire week dedicated to diversity and inclusiveness. Overall Rancho Cotate provides a great environment for all and is always growing.
