Templeton High School Reviews

I loved going to high school here! It’s a small town with a small high school. I loved how everyone could be everything at this school but because that’s true it makes it hard to have tons of AP and honors courses as well as many sports teams. Loved my teachers all very good, but I do have friends who had very poor math teachers. I feel this is one department that the school is lacking in. FFA program is awesome! The Athletic Director and Trainer make for a great small school athletics program. All throughout when I was here and since the school has been improving facilities and constantly adding new clubs. Overall I love THS!

I had a very good experience at Templeton High School. The teachers and their courses are great, but the organization is poor. Funding is constantly low, so many valuable programs and activities lack enough money to get students involved and interested. Their is not a good flow of information or assistance and students often don't know what they need to do or how to do it, especially when it comes to college applications, scheduling of classes, and scholarships. The STEM program at the school is great, but little attention is given to the arts and is focused on sports such as football and volleyball. It's a small, tight-knit student body with little diversity.
I've really enjoyed the past four years at Templeton. Although the school is very small, I made some amazing friends and participated in many activities. The sports programs are great, the staff is unbeatable, and I found that I always had support. I've enjoyed my senior year the most, especially due to my involvement in the ASB/Leadership class. I met many great students through this class and I had the opportunity to make a difference in the school. I'm also very glad that I became involved in athletics through varsity tennis. I grew very close to my teammates and my coach through this experience. I've enjoyed the majority of my classes as well as my teachers. Most of them taught me valuable information that goes beyond classroom knowledge. Overall, I'm very grateful for my high school career at Templeton.
