I believe Tesoro High School has a lot of potential to improve it’s variety of courses in the arts. There aren’t any APs for the arts & that limits all the artistic kids that want to go study an artistic field in College. But on the other hand, Tesoro has many counselors that want to help their students succeed in& out of the classroom.The school has so much to offer in terms of academics & showing school pride like football games, dances, spirit days, and more. You can easily submerge yourself in titan spirit here and in the classroom. I have been in many classes where the teacher has given unique assignments that intrigue different types of learners. For example, my history teacher made an escape room out of his own classroom & the theme was annexation of the Phillipines (topic of our next test). Overall, I have had a great experience at this school & would recommended to anyone who is interested in a great education & spirited school setting to come here!

Tesoro High School in Las Flores, CA is home to remarkable teachers, music programs, athletics, clubs, and students. Tesoro's teachers, notably in the history and science departments, truly care about student success and work to make Tesoro a more welcoming environment. Tesoro's choir teacher has received a Grammy award, in addition to Tesoro's bands and orchestras earning various awards and going on international trips. Furthermore, student athletes at Tesoro work seriously, and clubs such as Key Club involve student leadership through community service. Also, Tesoro's students are advanced with high AP Test scores, leading to competition between students that affects their overall experience at Tesoro. However, Tesoro is a fantastic school with many resources, making it an excellent place for ambitious college-bound students.
Tesoro has been my home for 4 years now, I am part of pep squad and have been all 4 years. Being involved with the school really adds a lot to the overall experience because the school spirit is crazy! One thing I would like to see change is the math department and the ways the curriculum is taught. Other than that Tesoro has a special place in my heart and has taught me so many life lessons and given me unforgettable memories.
