When I first came to Tolleson I was so unhappy because of all of the rumors surrounding the school being bad along with it being unsafe. But I should’ve never judged a book by its cover. Everyone is like family. Everyone is treated with respect. It’s like a second home. Everyone offers to help, that being teachers, students, security guards, etc. they will be there for you to help you become more comfortable at the school. At Tolleson, the counselors are the most helpful resource there. They want to help you, they never push you away, they want to help shape you in the best way possible.

If I could take away anything, I would say with how clean the school is. The Janitors do an amazing job with cleaning it’s just my peers that need to do a better job with keeping the environment clean as well.

I hope this helps!

My overall high school experience at Tolleson was great! I enjoyed the classes that I have taken and learned a lot from each. Besides academics, it was fun and easy to show school spirit and that atmosphere was nice. I definitely enjoyed my last three years and I hope my last year does not go by too fast.
