I would highly recommend the sports program at Tehachapi High School. I have played high school varsity soccer for 3 years coming on 4 and the coaches are so supportive and encouraging. Also Tehachapi high school has a variety of different clubs to be involved with. All of the teachers and faculty are there to make your high school career a success. To insure better safety our school just installed new security cameras to help keep a safe school environment. Tehachapi high school is a great place to be!

I have attended Tehachapi High School for four years. I have been very happy with the school overall. Most of my teachers have been great, willing to help you out at lunch if your having difficulties in the class. Most of them have seemed to really care . The sports programs have been the highlight of high school for me. I have had a great time playing football, basketball, running cross country and track. Overall I would say it’s been a great four years!
I'm an average high school junior at Tehachapi High School The campus is all open and spread out, which makes it hard to go back and forth across campus, especially during harsh weather. I wish the school had more options for AP, Honors, and college classes classes, but the teaches are mostly supportive and knowledgeable. Even though our sports teams are pretty awesome, many students agree that there should me more options for extracurricular activities and school-wide events. The school is pretty much average.
