Temple City High School Reviews
I personally really love the experience I had at Temple City High School! The experience of both extracurricular as well as academics at this school really defined my experience of learning and even shaping myself into the person I became today. With the various activities and classes that they offer and very intimate school culture and administration, I felt very close and even intimate with the people at my school and really advocate for such a great experience. With the teachers that are willing to help and support you as well as the counselors and career administrators pushing you to do your best in school I always felt a need to push and drive myself to do the very best I can. However, there are things that this school does lack. Such as diversity, with a campus that is heavily populated Asian it can be lacking in diversity for the student as well as the food and sports my school may not be known the best at but we still try to improve!
Temple City High School is an academic-oriented high school that are filled with academic-focused students. There are various AP courses for students to enroll in; however, most of them are only limited to juniors and seniors. The APs that are open to sophomores, or in special cases to Freshmen, are AP World History and AP Art History. The school is super safe and friendly. Sports needs some improvement, but coming from an athlete that graduated from there, students always gave it all in practices. I enjoy my time at the school, and wouldn't do anything differently. GO RAMS!
Graduated 2 years ago. TCHS had a big student body which was quite diverse. As a transfer student, I felt that the socializing process can be tough until one gets closely involved with a club/ organization/ sports team. Academic and career counselors are mostly helpful in class selection and the college application process. However, the process of getting into AP classes was a bit complex—spots are very limited and students often have to be tested in order to get in. The best AP class I took was AP Calculus—the teacher was very goal-oriented and helped us build a strong foundation for the AP Calc exam and college-level math. However, some of the AP teachers were not actually helpful in preparing students for the test. I did hope there were more programs related to major/ career exploration, as it does tie into the class selection process. Overall, I am very thankful for every teacher I had and the faculty I encountered—they all helped me grow in some ways.
